Iran has cut up to $23 million a month in funding for Hamas as punishment for the movement's support of Syrian rebels, Hamas leaders have admitted.
A senior member of Gaza's ruling Hamas movement on Sunday made a rare appeal to the Israeli public to halt escalating cross-border fighting, telling an Israeli radio station in fluent Hebrew that Hamas is ready to stop its rocket fire if Israel ends its attacks on Gaza.
TEL AVIV — The Hamas government in the Gaza Strip promised a new era of calm and respect for the law yesterday, after the release of kidnapped British reporter Alan Johnston.
"I can say it is not like the past," he said of Iranian funding, as The Telegraph reports. "I cannot give you the exact amount. For supporting the Syrian revolution, we lost very much."
"We are interested in calm but want the Israeli military to stop its operations," Mr. Hamad said in Hebrew.
