US looking for more chances to reduce finance flow to Hamas, Yellen says

(Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday said the Biden administration is looking for more opportunities to reduce the flow of financing to Hamas in the aftermath of its attacks against Israel.

Yellen, in an interview with Bloomberg, said the administration has already taken a “large number” of steps to put sanctions against Hamas in place.

Yellen also said she is not seeing much so far in the way of consequences to the global economy from the conflict between Israel and Hamas, but she is monitoring developments closely.
