IDF Airs New Footage of Sinwar Hiding in Hamas Terror Tunnel

(JNS) The IDF released a new video on Tuesday night, Feb. 13 that appears to show Hamas terror leader Yahya Sinwar and his family hiding in a tunnel under Khan Yunis in the Gaza Strip.

IDF forces recovered the security camera footage during a raid of a “strategic tunnel” underneath the southern Hamas stronghold, according to Israel’s Channel 13. Seen entering the tunnel shaft with one of his wives and three children, Sinwar appears unhurt.

Channel 12 News reported that the video was recorded on Oct. 10. Israeli troops seized the footage several months ago.

“This evening, we air footage of the mass murderer and mastermind of Hamas’s Oct. 7 massacre, Yahya Sinwar,” wrote Avichay Adraee, head of the Arab media division in the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

“While the people of Gaza are suffering above ground, Sinwar hides in the tunnels below them, running like a coward,” he added. “Hamas leaders only care about their families and their money.”

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari told Ynet that the military is “determined to capture him—and will capture him.

“Our job is to get to Sinwar, dead or alive. This is our mission … We will not reveal information about the ‘when’ and ‘how.’”

Sinwar is believed to still be hiding in the vast tunnel systems underneath Khan Yunis and the nearby city of Rafah, where he has reportedly surrounded himself with Israeli hostages as human shields.

Last week, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant showed documents seized from Hamas compounds in the Strip that he said proved the extent of Iranian funds flowing to Sinwar.

“The Hamas terrorist organization continues to fight as the citizens of Gaza are suffering,” Gallant said after meetings with the field intelligence unit of the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate. “What we see is that Yahya Sinwar takes care of himself first and foremost.”
