“They’re covered from head to toe, and underneath, they have an explosive belt.”
As the Israeli military closes in on remaining terrorist strongholds in Gaza, Hamas is using female suicide bombers against IDF troops.
Female terrorists, concealing suicide belts underneath their Islamic garbs, are being used to target IDF soldiers operating in the terror-infested enclave, the Israeli media reported Tuesday. “They’re covered from head to toe, and underneath, they have an explosive belt,” the Hebrew language newspaper Maariv reported, quoting an Israeli soldier on the Gaza front line.
Since the IDF launched the Gaza ground offensive seven weeks ago in response to the mass-murder of Israelis on October 7, Hamas has been using Palestinians as human shields during assaults against Israeli troops. The jihadist group has a long history of recruiting women and children as cannon fodder in its campaign of terror against Israeli civilians.
The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday:
As the IDF continues its operations in the Gaza Strip, Hamas terrorists have continued to use non-traditional methods of warfare, according to a recent report from Maariv.
A combat soldier who served in Gaza told the newspaper on Tuesday that Hamas is using suicide bombers.
“Anyone who wasn’t inside doesn’t understand what we’re dealing with,” the soldier said. “There’s very heavy fighting in a built-up area, and you can’t know where a Hamas ‘surprise’ will come from when, at the same time, we’re trying to locate the hostages.”
“Hamas is using women suicide bombers, in traditional Muslim dress, against us. They’re covered from head to toe, and underneath, they have an explosive belt.”
In the wake of the October 7 massacre, Hamas has been threatening to unleash a wave of suicide bombings and terrorist attacks against Jewish and Israeli institutions across the world. Last week, police in Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands arrested a Hamas-linked terrorist cell planning Europe-wide attacks on Jews and Israelis.

IDF uncovers huge Hamas rocket stockpile
Israeli troops on the ground continue to uncover Hamas’s terrorist infrastructure and weapons stockpiles, often hidden underneath residential neighborhoods. In the latest find, the IDF discovered a giant rocket and weapons stockpiles in northern Gaza.
The Israeli news website Arutz Sheva reported:
As part of the operations of troops from the 162 Division in the areas of Al-Atatra and Jabaliya, weapons production sites and a storage facility containing a large stockpile of armaments were uncovered. The soldiers located missiles, rockets, and explosives inside a building.
During the operation, the soldiers conducted targeted raids on the residences of terror operatives, where they located weapons, maps of significant tunnel routes, and intelligence findings.
While scanning a building, a rocket lathe was discovered with hundreds of missiles and a truck intended for their transportation to launchers.
The IDF found yet another weapons production site and storage facility in Gaza. Every day, there is further evidence of how Hamas robbed the Palestinian people to wage a futile war. pic.twitter.com/aaTiFIa1rF

Israeli airstrike eliminates top Hamas terror financier
Meanwhile, the IDF continues to target Hamas leadership and cripple its terrorist capabilities. On Tuesday, a joint operation by the Israeli military and intelligence services eliminated Hamas’s top terrorism financier in a targeted air strike in southern Gaza.
The slain terrorist, Subhi Ferwana, was responsible for funneling millions of dollars from Iran and other foreign terrorism- sponsors into the coffers of Hamas. The Islamic terrorist group has been using this money to procure weaponry, dig extensive tunnel systems, and pay salaries to tens of thousands of its Gaza-based terrorist fighters.
This is what targeted precision looks like:

The Israeli military released the details of the terror financier’s elimination:
In a targeted operation in the middle of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, Subhi Ferwana was eliminated by an IAF fighter jet directed by IDF and ISA intelligence. Ferwana was a prominent financier who, together with his brother, was involved in the transfer of tens of millions of dollars to the Hamas terrorist organization and its military wing in the Gaza Strip through their money exchange company, “Hamsat”, over the past few years.
Hamas’ military wing depends on these funds transferred to them via financiers and its capabilities are consequently diminished without them. Ferwana was one of the most prominent financiers and was able to transfer funds to Hamas’ military wing as required for war.
Ferwana transferred funds to Hamas’ military wing during the war and was aware that these funds would be vital for continuing the wing’s ability to fight. The funds were used – among other things – for intensification of military forces, the payment of terrorists’ salaries during the war, and to finance Hamas’ war activities.
Hamas uses financiers in order to receive the funds that are transferred to the terrorist organization from Iran and various fundraising sources abroad. The money changers carry out the transfers using the netting and money laundering method, while evading the international financial system.

Gaza hospital chief confesses Hamas used medical facilities to hide hostages
Hamas has been using medical faculties to hide Israeli hostages and carry out its terrorist combat activities, the head of Gaza’s hospital confessed in a recorded interrogation.
A hospital director, who is also a senior member of Hamas, admitted that his hospital served as a base for terrorist operations since the October 7 massacre and was used to hold a captured Israeli soldier hostage, the Israeli media reported Tuesday.
The IDF has already released video evidence showing Hamas terrorists misusing Gaza hospitals for their activities, thereby endangering the lives of civilians.
Hamas in their own words:
Ahmad Kahalot—Senior Hamas Member since 2010 and director of the Kamal Adwan Hospital in Jabalya in northern Gaza admits that Hamas has used hospitals as military facilities under their control.

The Times of Israel reported:
The director of Gaza’s Kamal Adwan hospital in Jabaliya reveals in a Shin Bet interrogation that his northern Gaza hospital was turned into a military facility under Hamas’s control and that at one point it housed a kidnapped soldier.
In footage published on Tuesday by the Shin Bet and IDF, hospital director Ahmed Kahlot tells Israeli forces that Hamas had offices inside the hospital and used it as a base for operational activity.
According to Kahlot, who himself has been a lieutenant colonel in Hamas since 2010, some 16 members of the hospital’s staff – including doctors, nurses and paramedics – are also Hamas operatives who serve in the al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the terror organization.
He adds that several members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Al-Quds Brigades are also employed in the hospital.
During an operation in Shejaiya (#Gaza), IDF troops found various weapons hidden inside a health clinic & near a school.
This included a @UN vest – indicating Hamas terrorists sought to disguise as UN. This is an sickening war crime!
