Israel traps cowardly Hamas leader in bunker and vows he’s a ‘dead man walking’ as troops choke Gaza

Israel’s defence minister Yoav Gallant said Hamas’s leader in Gaza was “hiding in his bunker … without contact with his associates”.

IDF forces are rapidly closing in on Gaza as fighter jets today struck a terror cell in the enclave’s north before sending in soldiers on foot.

It claimed a number of anti-tank missiles, launchers, other weapons and “various intelligence materials” were uncovered inside.

At least ten Hamas militants were also killed in the blast.

Gallant claimed Israeli troops are storming the terror group’s strongholds “from all directions, in perfect co-ordination with maritime and aerial forces.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Sinwar, 61, as acting like a “little Hitler in a bunker,” as he was suspected of hiding in a Hamas control centre beneath a Gaza Strip hospital.

And Israel Defence Forces spokesman Lt Col Richard Hecht compared him to al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden for his role in the Hamas atrocities.

Lt Col Hecht said: “Yahya Sinwar is the face of evil. He is the mastermind behind this, like Bin Laden was [with the 9/11 US attacks].”

The Israelis urged Gazans to kill or hand over the bogeyman themselves as this would “hasten the end to the war”.
