Israel ‘will look to kill Hamas’s leaders around the world after the war ends’, saying ‘they are marked for death’

  • Israel ‘already started preparation’ for targeted killings of Hamas leaders abroad 

Israel has plans to eliminate Hamas and will take out its leaders abroad when the war ends, it has been reported.

Hamas leaders around the world could be the target for assassination, Israeli officials told WSJ.

According to the report, Israel has already started the preparation for targeted killings abroad.

Hamas group’s members are known to hide across the Middle East.

In fact, Hamas terror chief Ismail Haniyeh was spotted cheering for joy from the safety of his Qatar office during the October 7 terror attacks.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a press conference: ‘I have instructed the Mossad to act against the heads of Hamas wherever they are’

The Israeli officials told WSJ: ‘The question now for Israeli leaders isn’t about whether to try to kill Hamas leaders elsewhere in the world, but where—and how.’

In November, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a press conference: ‘I have instructed the Mossad to act against the heads of Hamas wherever they are.’

During the same conference, Israel Minister of Defence Yoav Gallant said the Hamas leaders were ‘marked for death’.

But not everyone is on board with the plan as former Mossad director Efraim Halevy reportedly described the plan as ‘far-fetched’.

He added: ‘Pursuing Hamas on a worldwide scale and trying to systematically remove all its leaders from this world is a desire to exact revenge, not a desire to achieve a strategic aim.’

Le Figaro reported that Qatar received assurances from Israel that Mossad will not eliminate terrorists on their soil.

Meanwhile, an Israeli government spokesman declared that ‘will now take the mother of all thumpings’ after a truce pausing fighting in the Gaza Strip expired and hostilities resumed.

‘Unfortunately, Hamas decided to terminate the pause by failing to release all the kidnapped women,’ government spokesman Eylon Levy told a briefing.

‘Having chosen to hold onto our women, Hamas will now take the mother of all thumpings.’

Israel this morning relaunched its brutal offensive on Hamas with full force, firing a barrage of missiles and sending warplanes screaming over Gaza as a week-long ceasefire expired.

The truce officially expired at 7am local time (5am GMT), but the IDF claimed that Hamas ‘violated’ the ceasefire early and launched rockets on Israel in the early hours, with footage shared to social media appearing to show attacks on the city of Sderot close to the border with Gaza.

Just under an hour before the ceasefire officially expired, the IDF claimed it had ‘intercepted’ another attack, adding that a ‘number’ of rockets had been fired by Hamas before the truce ended.

The Hamas-led health ministry in Gaza said 14 people had been killed in the first two hours after fighting resumed. Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said, there were ’14 dead and dozens injured, most of them women and children’.

Though the seven-day truce offered a welcome reprieve from bloodshed and saw Hamas release dozens of Israeli and foreign hostages, dozens more remain trapped inside Gaza as fighting resumed this morning.

Despite the fresh violence, Qatari and Egyptian mediators are still negotiating a new extension of the seven-day truce.
