Hamas Confirms: Mohammed Deif is Still Alive


mohammed-deifHamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri has said that the elusive head of the terror group’s “military wing,” Mohammed Deif, is still “alive and well” despite an IDF assassination attempt which killed his wife and son, Arutz Sheva reported.

“The occupation will pay for its crimes against the Palestinian people,” declared Abu-Zuhri, who added a chilling warning to the people of southern Israel.

“The residents of the Gaza periphery will return to their homes only by the decision of the commander Mohammed Deif and one Israeli commitment to stop the aggression and lift the siege,” he threatened.

Adding to the threats, Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum said Wednesday that “difficult days” are coming for both Israel and Gaza, as an escalation in the violence is expected.

“(Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu and (Foreign Minister Avigdor) Liberman must prepare themselves for difficult days. They have never seen such (difficult days) in this war or its predecessors,” said Barhoum.

Meanwhile, thousands of Palestinians participated Wednesday afternoon in the funeral procession of the wife and 8-month-old son of Deif. The two were killed in an IDF attack Tuesday night on a house in Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in Gaza City.

The funeral procession left from a mosque in the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri warned that “residents of Gaza-border communities will not return to their homes until Mohammed Deif decides.”

  1. Of course Hamas is saying he’s alive. Would they say anything else and risk a crash in their morale? Israel is saying nothing – just that “terrorists are legitimate targets.” Let’s wait and see.

  2. Ok Hamas, so prove it! Show us a video of him proving that he is currently alive. Otherwise, this is just yet another lie to maintain the death hold on their own people

  3. If my expenses were to be covered, I will guarantee a positive IDband proof of death within two weeks
    I can be reached by those who know..
