Hamas’ military commander Mohammed Deif is still alive and directing Hamas’ terror operations in Gaza, despite multiple Israeli assassination attempts, Israel security officials cleared for publication on Wednesday.
Reports indicate that Deif, 51, whom Israel tried assassinating most recently during Operation Protective Edge, recovered from his supposed injuries and resumed directing Hamas’ efforts to replenish its weapons stockpiles and build new terror tunnels. Deif’s wife and two children were killed in the assassination attempt, the fifth by the IDF.
He is also reportedly working to strengthen ties with Iran in order to obtain funding and weapons for the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing.
A related report reveals that Hamas had a meticulously planned infiltration plan that the terrorists intended to carry out during the first week of the summer war, but it was vetoed by Hamas’ political leadership.
