Hamas leader Deif is still alive: seven attacks to eliminate him were not enough, the video

Mohammed Deif, the leader of Hamas’ al-Qassam Brigades, who Israel has been hunting for years, is still alive, according to images obtained by the IDF. In one of the videos, seized during intelligence gathering operations inside the Gaza Strip, Deif is seen walking alone, although with a slight limp. From this footage it appears that Deif’s condition is significantly better than Israel believed after a long series of attacks, some of which injured him. Deif can walk independently and does not use a wheelchair.

Over the course of many years, Deif survived a total of seven assassination attempts. In four of them, including during Operation Protective Edge in 2014, he was injured, in some cases seriously, and recovered. In recent years, Deif has threatened Israel, declaring that the state will pay a heavy price for the events on the Temple Mount and in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem. Last week, the IDF dropped leaflets in Gaza offering rewards of more than $100,000 to anyone who provided reliable information on the whereabouts of senior Hamas officials, including Mohammed Deif. The pamphlets stated that the IDF would pay $400,000 for information leading to the location of Yahya Sinwar and $300,000 to help locate his brother Mahmoud. The search for leaders continues.
