Netanyahu says IDF surrounds Hamas leader’s Gaza home – Magazine Creations

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that his country’s military is now “surrounding” the home of Hamas leader Yahya Shinwar in the Gaza Strip.

“Last night I said that our forces can reach anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now they are surrounding Shinwar’s house. So his house is not his fortress and he can escape, but it is a matter of time before we get him,” Netanyahu he said in a video announcement.

“Secondly, we are lobbying to allow the Red Cross to visit our hostages. Additionally, today I spoke again with the president of the Red Cross and told her to turn to Qatar, which has proven to have leverage with Hamas, and they are demanding visits by Red Cross to our hostages and of course the supply of medicine for them,” Netanyahu added.

Sinwar is believed to be somewhere in the Palestinian enclave, but hidden in Hamas’ vast underground network of tunnels.
