According to a report by Channel 12 on Tuesday night, Yahya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in Gaza, may be dealing with a complicated case of pneumonia, as stated by an anonymous Arab country.

This information allegedly came from senior Hamas officials within that country, which had been in contact with the terror group, urging Hamas to consider moving toward a ceasefire.

In response, Hamas conveyed the severity of its situation, citing a lack of ammunition and deteriorating military structures.

Earlier reports on Tuesday hinted at uncertainty regarding Sinwar’s whereabouts, with speculation that he might have fled from the Gaza Strip to Egypt. However, later in the day, Kan News reported that Sinwar had re-established communications with the Hamas leadership abroad.

The uncertainty surrounding Sinwar coincides with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant’s statement that Hamas is actively seeking a replacement for Sinwar.

Despite these developments, last week’s IDF video, dated Oct. 10, showing Sinwar in the Gaza tunnels, suggested he was in good health at that time.
