Germany’s interior ministry said German police on Wednesday raided the offices of Islamic organizations suspected of financing Hamas, which is on the European Union’s list of terrorist organizations.

WorldWide Resistance-Help and Ansaar International were the main targets of the raids.

“Whoever supports Hamas under the guise of humanitarian aid disregards fundamental values of our constitution and discredits the commitment of many aid organizations,” Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said.

Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has conducted low-level warfare against Israel since March, 2018, organizing riots along the border and sending incendiary kites and balloons into the Jewish State, causing damage to wide swathes of Israel’s southern countryside.

Hamas also launches missiles at Israel attempting to inflict as much as damage as possible without distinguishing between military and civilian targets.

Israel left the Gaza Strip in 2005. In 2006, Hamas won elections in Gaza. In 2007, a violent conflict broke out between Hamas and its political rival, the Palestinian Authority, which Hamas won.
