IDF Reaches Heart of Gaza City, Hunt Begins for Hamas Chief Yahya Sinwar and Other Terror Commanders

Gaza rocket slams into Shifa hospital doubling as Hamas HQ

As Israel’s ground forces reach the heart of the terrorist-infested Gaza City after more than two weeks of fighting, the Israeli military is hunting for Hamas’ chief Yahya Sinwar.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is operating in “heart of Gaza City,”the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS reported Saturday. “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel will find Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in Gaza.”

With Hamas terrorists firing missiles and mortars from underground tunnels, the Israeli soldiers are fighting their way in house-to-house combat in search of Hamas chief Sinwar and other wanted terrorists responsible for the October 7 massacres.

“The IDF’s 7th Armored Brigade raided an office belonging to Muhammad Sinwar, the brother of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, and confiscated terrorist equipment and Hamas pamphlets, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said Friday,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

“The IDF said it conducted a series of raids on Hamas facilities located in the heart of a civilian district in Gaza, and killed two Hamas Nukhba Force commanders who took part in the October 7 assault,” the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

IDF takes out Hamas commander who held civilians hostage in Gaza hospital

An Israeli airstrike took out a senior Hamas commander who previously took 1,000 civilians hostage inside a hospital and prevented them from leaving the combat zone in northern Gaza, the military reported Saturday morning.

The IDF disclosed the details of the operation in a press release:

Based on precise IDF and ISA intelligence, and with the direction of IDF ground troops, IDF aircraft struck Ahmed Siam, a company commander of the Naser Radwan Company of the Hamas terrorist organization. Two days ago, the IDF spokesperson exposed that Siam held hostage approximately 1000. Gazan residents at the Rantisi Hospital and prevented them from evacuating southwards for their safety.

Ahmed Siam was killed while hiding in the “al Buraq” school, where additional terrorists under this command were also hiding and were killed. Ahmed Siam demonstrates once again that Hamas uses the civilians of the Gaza Strip as human shields for terror purposes.

Gaza rocket slams into Shifa hospital doubling as Hamas HQ

In a bizarre twist of fate, a misfired Palestinian rocket on Friday slammed into Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital, Hamas’ headquarters and weapons storage site. Several wanted terrorists, including Hamas’s top brass, are believed to be hiding beneath the hospital which is build over a vast underground terrorist compound.

“Below ground lies a clandestine bunker network that serves as a sanctuary for top Hamas officials,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported Thursday. “It also features entry points to a labyrinth of terror tunnels, dubbed the Gaza Metro, which spans for miles below the Palestinian enclave.”

The IDF on Friday confirmed that the rocket that hit the hospital was a failed Hamas missile from inside Gaza. The Jerusalem Post reported:

Avichay Adraee, the IDF spokesman in Arabic, said on Friday that the rocket that hit Al Shifa Hospital in the Gaza Strip was caused by “a failed launch by the terrorist organizations that tried to fire at Israel,” according to a post on his X account. (…)

In another tweet, he wrote “according to the information available to the IDF, the terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip are responsible for launching the failed missile that hit the hospital.”

IDF strikes Syria, Hezbollah terror targets amid Iranian threats

The Israeli military struck terrorist targets in Syria and Lebanon as Iran’s foreign minister threatened to widen the conflict.

The Times of Israel reported the Iranian threat:

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has reportedly told his Qatari counterpart, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, that the expansion of the Israel-Hamas war is “inevitable.”

“Due to the expansion of the intensity of the war against Gaza’s civilian residents, expansion of the scope of the war has become inevitable,” Iran’s Press TV quoted Amir-Abdollahian as saying in a phone call Thursday.

The IDF once again hit terrorist targets in Syria, a base of operation for Hezbollah and other Iran-sponsored terrorist groups. “Israeli forces struck targets in Syria overnight in response to a UAV aerial attack on the southern city of Eilat on Thursday,” the i24NEWS TV channel reported Saturday. “In rare acknowledgment of their operation, the IDF said they hit targets in Syria as a direct response to the drone attack on southern Israel.”

With its ground offensive in full swing in Gaza, Israel is also taking measures to counter a direct military threat from Iran and its proxy terrorist forces fanned across in the Middle East. “The IDF is preparing for the possibility of an attack from Iran and Iraq if the fighting in the Gaza Strip continues,” the Haaretz newspaper reported citing IDF sources.

>> Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel will find Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in Gaza.<<

Oh please, if Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar is anywhere it most definitely is not going to be in Gaza. That's for sure. He and the rest of the Hamas top leadership are probably hiding out in Iran or some other sympathetic country when it became quite apparent that the IDF was going to hunt them down no matter what anyone thought. All the IDF will find is low level leadership left as scapegoats for the Oct. 7th atrocities. That is all.


    They are hiding in luxury while their people die in abject squalor.

    Elections really do have consequences eh.

    Assuming you are right, and that Iran wants expansion of hostilities, they should receive what they have been asking for. Start by destroying largest dams (there are 600-700) and work down in size. Give them a bath. Iran is in a decades long drought, so taking out their water storage will hit them hard. if they are still belligerent, take out petro, wells and refineries, then their power grid and so on. Return them to living conditions of Muhammad. A good way to dispose of the hottest spent fuel rods might be dirty bombs which make suspected underground sites so radioactive that they cannot access them.

    As I see this, the best way to stop terrorism is defang or cut the head off of the Iranian snake.

      Taking out their Persian Gulf naval and oil terminals would be an easy morning for the US navy.

        Especially since the vast majority of them are located on Kharg Island which has no infrastructure connecting it to the mainland. It would take them weeks or possibly even months to repair any significant damage.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to Ironclaw. | November 11, 2023 at 1:48 pm

          Water creates an immediate crisis, how long can people live without water? It would also be hard to truck water in. And any tankers would be great targets,

          I think that blooding Iran’s nose would be a good way to send China a clear message.

          Ironclaw in reply to Ironclaw. | November 11, 2023 at 1:55 pm

          I’m not disputing that at all. However, one or two missiles to take out their oil terminals is a damn cheap way to cut off their income stream and it would take significantly more resources to take out between 500 and 1000 dams. Plus, targeting civilian infrastructure like that with the intent to harm the civilian population would cause quite a stir and, honestly, if we want that kind of fracas why stop at conventional arms? If they want nukes so bad, maybe they deserve a first-hand demonstration?

        txvet2 in reply to geronl. | November 11, 2023 at 2:38 pm

        It would also close down the Persian Gulf. Whether you think that’s a good thing or bad, the world will suddenly find itself out of oil.

          Whitewall in reply to txvet2. | November 11, 2023 at 2:46 pm

          Plus touch off civil war in Iran with Iraq possibly getting in on it. The oil market would collapse.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to txvet2. | November 11, 2023 at 7:41 pm

          Ramp up or oil production, then collect big bucks on the shortage, just like Middle East suppliers have done.

          I am not saying no to nukes, but dirty bombs would have a severe impact in comparatively small areas.

    “In a huge development, Hamas’ senior leader, Yahya Sinwar, has been “trapped.” Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant made the announcement about Yahya Sinwar. Yoav Gallant said that Hamas’ senior leader was isolated in a Gaza bunker.”

    Would not be surprised if a Saddam moment is in the cards. Hopefully, he lives and is tried for his crimes.

      Lucifer Morningstar in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | November 11, 2023 at 1:41 pm

      Interesting Hindustani Times video. A claim was made repeatedly that Yhaya Sinwar was trapped in a Gaza bunker but I didn’t actually see any proof of that assertion. I would like to think it’s true but until they drag his lifeless body out of some bunker and string him up for all to see I’ll reserve my judgement as to where Sinwar and the rest of the high-level Hamas leadership actually are located.

        Do you really think that those conducting the war should make us privy? He’s better alive so he can be tried before the world to document what happened. Then he can meet justice, whatever that is.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | November 11, 2023 at 1:52 pm

          Justice would be to inflict as many of the things on him that people in Israel suffered, unfortunately that is unlikely to happen.

          Yes, but after his trial is preserved for posterity, assuming we get that far. At the rate things are going, it’s an open question.

          I’m kind of into dual use here. Justice, of course, the leadership should be made to pay for their atrocities and the direct and purposeful targeting of innocents and civilians.

          On the other hand, when that justice is meted out it should be of such an excruciating, painful, drawn-out and agonizing nature that it discourages such behavior in the future. And, of course, it should be public so that all can see and learn.

    I guess Mr. Yaya is the highest ranking one on the ground in Gaza?

I came across this again as it has been around in many forms over the years. It holds a lot of truth:

Here’s the article that was sent to me: “THE CAMELS ARE ON THE HORIZON! Never a truer word spoken. We have heard it before but this enlarges upon it. The founder of Dubai, Sheik Rashid, was asked about the future of his country, and he replied, “My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I ride a Mercedes, my son rides a Land Rover, and my grandson is going to ride a Land Rover…but my great-grandson is going to have to ride a camel again”. Why is that, he was asked? And his reply was, “Hard times create strong men, strong men create easy times. Easy times create weak men, weak men create difficult times. Many will not understand it, but you have to raise warriors, not parasites.” And add to that the historical reality that all great empires…the Persians, the Trojans, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, and in later years, the British… all rose and perished within 240 years. They were not conquered by external enemies; they rotted from within. America has now passed that 240-year mark, and the rot is starting to be visible and is accelerating, not just in America, but applicable in the western world. We are past the Mercedes and Land Rover years….the camels are on the horizon.
The greatest generation consisted of 18-year-old kids storming the beaches at Normandy. And now, two generations later, some 18-year-old kids want to hide in safe rooms when they hear words that hurt their feelings. They also want free stuff from the government because they think they are entitled to it. The “camels are on the horizon” for sure. Something to ponder? History has a way of repeating itself.” (End of article).

    JohnSmith100 in reply to Whitewall. | November 11, 2023 at 11:20 am

    It is very much true. When I was about 10 I no longer had the same interests as people my age, I found that older people were gold mines of skills and knowledge. Most of them were shaped by the depression and WW2. They had skills far beyond their profession. Most had wood or metal shops in their basements and garages. They could repair just about anything. Hardship built character That shaped my world view.

      Whitewall in reply to JohnSmith100. | November 11, 2023 at 1:09 pm

      Same for me. I learned how to work in its truest sense courtesy of some of those ‘got it he hard way’ Depression/WW2 adults. Lot of them never finished school because the necessities of life called them away. They taught us how to work, how to live ‘use it up wear it out make it do or do without’. Lots of these ‘got it the hard way’ types became successful in their work because they knew how to delay gratification, or, just live as they had always done. My Dad, Army Engineers Pacific Theater, worked and saved until he had to retire because of health. In his mind, the Depression could come back any day now and he remembered being hungry too often in the 1930s. I learned more than I realized from him and his peers during my formative years. I am grateful. I suspect many on this page have the same experience.

      Ironclaw in reply to JohnSmith100. | November 11, 2023 at 1:52 pm

      I’ve found myself at at odds with all kinds of different people. For instance, one of my main reasons to oppose EV’s is that I can’t do the repairs and maintenance myself because good luck getting the parts or any technical info you might need to repair them. Especially if you want the OEM quality parts and not cheap aftermarket chinesium junk. But, of course, it’s looked down upon to work with your hands by many people nowadays. Which is why I delight in presenting some of them with a very realistic estimate when they need some of that type of work to be done, and I make sure not to cut them any slack on materials or labor cost.

        txvet2 in reply to Ironclaw. | November 11, 2023 at 2:46 pm

        “”I can’t do the repairs and maintenance myself””

        That goes for any modern vehicle. I wouldn’t know where to begin to work on my turbocharged Honda, and I certainly lack the computerized equipment needed for even minor work.

    geronl in reply to Whitewall. | November 11, 2023 at 1:33 pm

    and when the west collapses and stops buying oil from them, they go down too

      Ironclaw in reply to geronl. | November 11, 2023 at 2:09 pm

      Oh, we don’t have to collapse to stop buying oil from them. Now, Europe is in a bit of a different situation since they have no domestic options. But all we have to do here in ‘Merica is to utilize the resources right under our feet. The major obsticale, of course, is the idiots that can’t seem to figure out that we need such resources to maintain our modernity.

They are going to evacuate Al-Shifa hospital in order to clean out and plug up the underground Hamas headquarters. Afterwards, they will probably let the patients back in and maybe even provide some medical supplies. Just a guess.

So Hamas doesn’t care about Pales, neither do other Arabs. Jordan most certainly did not care when they revoked their citizenship. Pales are stupid to be willing pawns. I see not reason to lose sleep over their fate.

    Ironclaw in reply to JohnSmith100. | November 11, 2023 at 1:47 pm

    As far as the Jordanians go, who can blame them? Would you want to keep a group that basically started a civil war and tried to overthrow your government?

      JohnSmith100 in reply to Ironclaw. | November 11, 2023 at 2:02 pm

      Pales did conduct a real insurrection. as I recall, Jordan killed 15,000 of them, should have killed them all at then.

Good luck hunting IDF

Always amusing to me to have these casualty counts referred to as ‘civilians’. How about these media entities stop reporting verbatim propaganda from Hamas and do some investigation? ‘Gosh, CommoChief, that would be really hard to sort out b/c Hamas ain’t wearing uniforms’. No shit, they are unlawful combatants for failing to wear a uniform. ‘But CommoChief, some of them are women and children’. Are y’all trying to say that Women can’t be combatants ’cause that’s way different than the girl power narrative that predominates elsewhere. As for ‘children’; how about we call those 12 and under children and refer to those 13-17 teenagers and 18+ as adults? Besides which plenty of folks 17 and younger who can carry a rifle, throw a grenade/rock, serve as a lookout or otherwise make a military contribution.

    Children in Gaza are taught how to be terrorists from a young age in the schools funded by the UN, US and EU

    JohnSmith100 in reply to CommoChief. | November 11, 2023 at 2:08 pm

    They start poisoning their children’s minds as soon as they can talk. Babies and toddles might be salvageable, older than that, probably not.

Unfortunately, can’t cite to it, but Rabbi Shmuley gave an amazing and derserved dressing down to Cenk Uygur on Piers Morgan Show.

For those to whom it matters, it will leave you feeling good.

Kill them all and let God sort them out. If those terrorists are not there then Shin Bet and the IDF Kill Teams will waste no effort to hunt them down to the ends of the Earth and eliminate them no matter how long it takes.

People better wake up to the fact that Hamas started a War and Israel will end it.
