Defense Minister Yoav Gallant visited the IDF’s Document and Technical Means Collection Unit (Amshat) and uncovered evidence of something that was long suspected; the mastermind of the Hamas October 7th massacre is pocketing millions from Iranian funds earmarked for the terror group.

Gallant indicated an envelope he found addressed to Sinwar with $20,000 in it and said, “This has been known to us for years, but here there is clear evidence of the amounts that were transferred, when they arrived, in which hands, and of course what we see is that Yahya Sinwar takes care of himself before anyone else.”

“Out of millions of dollars, one million goes to him, out of tens of millions, he slips what he needs into his pocket,” Gallant added.

Gallant continued, “Hamas is fighting a war of crime and murder, and Yahya Sinwar at this time is celebrating with his family.”

“When this thing ends, Yahya Sinwar will go from leading a terror organization to becoming a fugitive terrorist,” concluded Gallant.

The Defense Minister praised the soldiers who collected the information which is currently being decoded, processed and analyzed to assist the IDF in discovering Hamas’s plans.

“The things that our soldiers have brought during the months of fighting are amazing.” Gallant said.

“There are enormous volumes of material here on computers and papers,” he continued.

Gallant explained, “This information flows, is decoded here by the best experts of the IDF, the General Security Service, and then is used by our forces, showing them where to go and what to do.”

“Our forces are dismantling the targets according to Hamas’s own plans. We are learning other very, very interesting things here,” Gallant concluded.

After dismantling Hamas in northern Gaza and destroying the terror group’s headquarters in Khan Younis, the IDF is continuing the process of breaking the control of Hamas in Rafah.

The IDF estimates they have eliminated 10,000 of the estimated 30,000 Hamas terrorists with another 15,000 wounded and out of commission.
