Israeli spies believe that a presumed dead Hamas leader is behind the recent terror attacks on Israel.
Hamas claimed leader Mohammed Sinwar died in 2014. They even included an image of him lying on a bloodstained bed.
But Israeli spies now alleged his death was actually a stunt to protect him from assassination attempts – having survived six attempted attacks. Alleging was one of four figures behind an attack which killed 1,400 people in Israel.

Speaking to the Telegraph, a former Mossad counter-terror chief said: “He was 100% one of the core team who planned October 7. In the military leadership, he's very important.
“He's around number seven on the wanted list, alongside the likes of Mohammed Deif, Marwan Issa and Tawfiq Abu Naim. He's an important figure and he's still alive for sure.”
Mohammed Sinwar is the younger brother of Yahya Sinwa, Hamas's leader in Gaza and Israel's most-wanted terrorist. It is believed he helped free his older brother from an Israeli jail in 2011.

He is considered an “expert” in using kidnappings to secure the release of prisoners, according to Ronen Solomon – an intelligence analyst and author of the Intelli Times blog. The expert added that Gaza residents will not be able to identify him, due to the secrecy shrouding him.
Israeli defence minister Yoav Gallant held a meeting where Mohammed's picture was shown alongside that of his brother. Though it is understood his involvement and name were not mentioned in connection with the October attack.

People keep confusing social media star Hasbulla with militant group Hezbollah
According to Mail Online, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday insisted that there will be no ceasefire in the war against Hamas until all of the hostages are returned. Stating that Israel “will not stop until we complete our mission” and that its only goal is to win.
Israel is backed by US President Joe Biden who has the “political and ethical support” of the American administration. He called on the government to “not succumb to this pressure” and said, “Our war is their war”.
He rejected calls for a ceasefire. Instead, he said the only way to achieve peace is to “eliminate Hamas”.
The conflict between Israel and Palestine continues to rage with more than 11,000 Palestinians being killed and the Israeli death toll standing at more than 1,200.
