Israel has obtained footage of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in a Gaza tunnel surrounded by his wife and children. The recording was made just a few days ago in Khan Younis. Currently, experts are analyzing the footage to assess the health condition of the Hamas leader. It may be released in the coming days.

According to, the video lasts about a minute, showing Yahya Sinwar carrying a bag and wearing Adidas flip-flops. The footage was captured by a surveillance camera installed by Hamas militants in one of the tunnels discovered by Israeli soldiers. The soldiers dismantled the camera and confiscated the data storage.

The Israeli security establishment believes that Sinwar has been “out of contact with the outside world” for many days. Supposedly, Hamas leaders outside the Gaza Strip do not communicate with him and do not coordinate negotiations with Israel.
