Hagari said, "This evening we are releasing the video of mass murderer and mastermind behind the Hamas massacre of October 7, Yahya Sinwar. This video is one of many that we have obtained since October 7. Sinwar started a war with Israel, a war that Israel did not seek."

He added, "Spotted: Yahya Sinwar running away and hiding in his underground terrorist tunnel network as Gazan civilians suffer above ground under the rule of Hamas terrorism. There is no tunnel deep enough for him to hide in."

Sinwar appeared healthy and was carrying a bag and wearing flip-flops. Though only his back could be seen in the footage the Israeli authorities identified him by the larger size of the man's ears and by using artificial intelligence.

Concluding the video, the spokesperson said, "Hamas leaders, wherever they are hiding, should know they are on borrowed time."
