Hamas leader escapes from northern Gaza in humanitarian convoy

The leader of the Hamas group in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, according to Israeli media, left the north of the region, hiding in a humanitarian convoy at the beginning of the Israeli ground operation. According to a source familiar with the situation, Sinwar used a vehicle carrying humanitarian aid to leave Gaza City towards the southern city of Khan Yunis.

It is currently believed that it may be located in Khan Yunis or in one of the tunnels under the city. Earlier on Wednesday, Israeli troops surrounded a house belonging to Sinwar, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed confidence that authorities would soon reach Sinwar himself.

On October 7, the radical group Hamas, based in the Gaza Strip, carried out an attack on Israel, which prompted a response military operation from Israel. A ceasefire was declared in Gaza on November 24, but fighting resumed on December 1 after the parties failed to reach an agreement to extend it.
