Prime Minister Netanyahu: ''Our Forces Are Surrounding Sinwar's House''
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu published a statement on Wednesday, December 6, concerning two updates on the war in Gaza and the efforts to return the hostages.
“Yesterday, I said that our forces can get anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now, they are surrounding the home of (Yahya) Sinwar. Now, his home is not his fort, and he escapes, but it is only a matter of time until we reach him,” Netanyahu declared.
Regarding the hostages, he stated: “We are applying pressure to allow for visits by the Red Cross of the hostages. In that regard, I spoke today with the President of the Red Cross and told her to speak to Qatar, which has proven to have leverage on Hamas, and demand the Red Cross visit the hostages and, of course, supply them with medication.”
IDF Chief-of-staff Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi had also hinted on Tuesday that the IDF is closing in on Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar as it has penetrated the heart of Khan Younis in southern Gaza. He said that the IDF has encircled southern Gaza and Khan Younis, where multiple top officials have said Sinwar is hiding, though there is still no precise timeline for capturing or killing him.
Furthermore, the IDF and Shin Bet disclosed on Thursday that they had killed two senior Hamas terrorists who operated in Hamas’s intelligence unit in Gaza. More specifically, the Israeli Air Force, operating on intelligence supplied by the IDF and Shin Bet, successfully targeted Abdel Aziz Rantisi and Ahmed Aiush.
Rantisi, a seasoned intelligence operative, was responsible for Hamas’s field intelligence in Gaza and had been among those who planned the October 7 massacre in southern Israel, the IDF said. Aiush was an operative from the observation unit of Hamas’s Carrara Battalion. (INN / VFI News)
