Wall Street Journal corrects article misciting Hamas’ crypto terrorism funding data By Cointelegraph


The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has partially corrected an article that mischaracterized the extent to which Hamas and other militant groups have been funding its terrorist activities with cryptocurrencies.

The Oct. 10 article titled “Hamas Militants Behind Israel Attack Raised Millions in Crypto” cited blockchain forensics firm Elliptic and said Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a terrorist organization operating in the Gaza Strip, raised as much as $93 million between August 2021 and June 2023.
