According to a senior Hamas source speaking to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Yahya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in Gaza, recently emerged from the group’s tunnels to meet with its terrorists on the surface. The source stated that Sinwar inspected areas of recent clashes between Hamas and the IDF, emphasizing that Sinwar remains connected to the situation on the ground.

The source dismissed claims that Sinwar was isolated in the tunnels, attributing such assertions to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s attempts to deflect attention from perceived failures. Additionally, the source denied reports suggesting a change in Hamas’s demands regarding hostage releases, asserting that the number of captives exceeds what some media outlets have reported.

Furthermore, the source claimed that Hamas currently holds around 30 IDF and Shin Bet officers captive in secure locations, beyond the reach of Israeli forces.

In response to these revelations, the Hostage and Missing Families Forum emphasized the credibility of reports indicating Sinwar’s aboveground presence. They criticized the Israeli government’s failure to secure the release of hostages while Hamas terror leaders roam freely in Gaza.
