Yayha Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in Gaza, issued his first public statement since the October 7 terror attack, asserting that his forces are facing a tough battle against Israel.

Sinwar made exaggerated claims of success, including the number of Israeli soldiers killed and injured, as well as the destruction of Israeli military equipment.

Additionally, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad rejected an Egyptian proposal to give up power in Gaza in exchange for ending the war.

Sinwar said Hamas is facing a “fierce, violent and unprecedented battle”.

Yocheved Lifshitz, a freed Israeli hostage and peace activist, said, “Sinwar was with us three to four days after we arrived.”

“I asked him how he is not ashamed to do such a thing to people who have supported peace all these years,” she continued.
