Israel this week revealed its own Osama Bin Laden following the October 7 Hamas attack on the Jewish nation.

The attack, which has been dubbed Israel’s own 9/11, saw Hamas terrorists Assault, murder and injure hundreds of Israeli and American citizens. The terrorists also killed month-old babies and burnt their bodies. The terrorists also kidnaped scores of Israeli and American citizens, including women and children.

Israel has now identified 60-year-old Yahya Sinwar, the current head of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as the mastermind behind the attack. Lt. Col. Richard Hecht, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), maintained that Sinwars is the “Bin Laden” of the attack.

“Yahya Sinwar is the face of evil,” said Hecht. “He is the mastermind behind this like bin Laden was. He built his career on murdering Palestinians when he understood they were collaborators. That’s how he became known as the butcher of Khan Younis [in southern Gaza.] That man and his whole team are in our sights. We will get to that man”

Hetch vowed that Israeli troops would find Sinwar wherever he was hiding and would not rest until he was captured and killed.

Israeli forces have arrested the Hamas commander multiple times in the past. In 1989, Sinwar received four life terms in Israel for a series of offenses that included murder and kidnaping.

The 60-year-old spent 24 years in Israeli prisons but was released in 2011 as part of a prisoner swap in exchange for an Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. The deal also saw Israel release over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in return for Shalit, who was kidnapped by Hamas militants in a cross-border raid in 2006.

The United States government designated Sinwar as a terrorist in September 2015. Hamas elected the 60-year-old as its leader in the Gaza Strip in 2017. He replaced Ismail Haniyeh, a former prime minister of Gaza.
