The Hamas terror group could exploit the war against Israel to carry out terror attacks on American soil, FBI director Christopher Wray told the House of Representatives on Wednesday night.

“We’ve kept our sights on Hamas and have multiple investigations into individuals affiliated with that foreign terrorist organization.

“And while, historically, our Hamas cases have identified individuals located here who are facilitating and financing terrorism overseas,” the Wray added, “we continue to scrutinize our intelligence to assess how the threat may be evolving.”

Since Hamas’ Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel, Wray said the FBI has seen “a rogue’s gallery of foreign terrorist organizations call for attacks against Americans and our allies,” naming Hezbollah, the Islamic State, and al-Qaida.

Wray said that of particular concern were “homegrown violent extremists inspired by a foreign terrorist organization, and domestic violent extremists targeting Jewish Americans or other faith communities, like Muslim Americans.”

The FBI chief said the “biggest chunk of the threats that have been reported, by a good margin,” have been to the Jewish community.
