NABLUS, West Bank Israeli troops destroyed five foreign exchange depots and a bank in the West Bank early Wednesday, making off with hundreds of thousands of dollars the army said was earmarked for terrorism.

The troops entered Nablus and Jenin overnight, pulling Jenin money changers from their homes and forcing them to open their businesses, two Jenin money changers said. The army confiscated hundreds of thousands of dollars, although the exact amount was not immediately known.

The Israeli military refused to give details of the operation, saying only that forces operated in Nablus overnight targeting "funds that serve terrorism and the terrorist infrastructure."

"They took me from my house and forced me to open the door and took everything I have: money, checks, dollars, shekels," Assar said. "They didn't leave me anything except for the rubble."
