"Israel" prepping teams to assassinate Hamas leaders abroad
"Israel" has an infamous history of targeting Resistance leaders living abroad.
The Israeli government is reportedly telling its allies that it is in the process of preparing teams to carry out assassinations on Hamas leaders living outside Palestine.
The UK's The Times said in an article published Monday, citing unnamed intelligence sources, that a "clear message" was to be sent to the Resistance movement.
According to the daily, Israeli figures have constantly advocated for killing Hamas' leader in Gaza, Yahya Al-Sinwar. However, instead of moving on with this plan, they are planning on assassinating Hamas leaders living outside Palestine, citing Lebanon and Qatar as examples.
Abu Obeida, the military spokesperson for Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas' military wing, issued a warning of an “unprecedented response” should “Israel” attempt to assassinate any of its top leadership, especially Hamas Gaza Strip leader Yahya Al-Sinwar.
“Harming the leader Al-Sinwar or any of the resistance leaders will cause an earthquake in the region,” Abu Obeida tersely stated.
The report mentioned potential targets such as Saleh Al-Arouri the Deputy Head of Hamas' Political Bureau and Zaher Jabarin, a member of Hamas' political bureau who is said to be responsible for the movement's finances.
"Israel" has an infamous history of targeting Hamas leaders living abroad, most notably the 2016 assassination of Mohammed Al-Zoari, who developed Hamas' drone program, and the 2018 assassination of Fadi Mohammed Al-Batsh, who was gunned down by two motorcyclists as he was headed to the mosque to pray at dawn. Another example is that of Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, who in 2010 was assassinated in his hotel room in Dubai.
