In his first public message after the October 7 massacres, Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar said today that the Islamic faction is facing a “fierce and unprecedented battle” against Israel, adding that Hamas will never submit to the “conditions of occupation.” In a speech to the political leadership of Gaza, reported among others by the Times of Israel, Sinwar said he was confident in victory, claiming that Hamas managed to kill “more than a thousand enemy soldiers”, a figure far from the toll of the Israeli authorities who estimate the number of soldiers killed so far is just over 150.
