The Price of Jewish Blood

First it was Saddam Hussein's US$25,000 bounty paid to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.

Now, from a New York Post article, Hizbollah is paying Palestinians to fire Qassam rockets into Israel to kill Israelis:

Hezbollah and its Iranian backers are rewarding Palestinian terrorists with thousands of dollars for each homemade rocket that hits southern Israel, according to Israeli intelligence.

The size of the payoffs depends on the number of Israelis killed or wounded, the Jerusalem Post reported yesterday.

Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based guerrilla group that fought a border war with Israel last summer, is smuggling cash from Iran into the Gaza Strip to pay off different terrorist organizations who launch homemade Qassam rockets into the western Negev region of Israel.

"Sometimes, they are paid before the attack and sometimes they submit a bill to Lebanon and the money gets transferred a short time later," a security official said.
The reward for killing Jews used to be 72 virgins in Paradise. Israel's restraint in no longer targetting terrorists seems to have forced payments to be made in advance rather than in arrears.

Question: Money is transferred to terrorists. Which banks are being used?
