GAZA — Hamas Political Bureau member Mohammad Nazzal responded to Israeli Minister of Defense Yoav Galant's claim about Hamas seeking an alternative to Leader Yahya Sinwar by stating that Sinwar continues to fulfill his leadership duties within Hamas, emphasizing that all leaders within the movement are elected through a democratic process, Al-Ghad reported. اضافة اعلان

Galant also claimed, following an evaluation of the situation in the southern command, that the Khan Younis Battalion is fragmented and lacks operational effectiveness as a military unit. He further remarked that Hamas maintains a presence in central camps and with the Rafah battalion but is experiencing significant military deterioration. Additionally, Galant highlighted that Hamas's Gaza outpost is currently inactive, indicating a loss of communication with them.

Nazzal responded, "The Israeli talk about dismantling Gaza's resistance capabilities is not correct. Most of the resistance fighters are fighting in Gaza, and we do not give the enemy free information."

In addition, He responded to comments made by the Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sameh Hassan Shouckry, during a session at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. Shouckry had asserted that "Hamas was outside the acceptable majority for the people and the Palestinian Authority." However, Nazzal countered Shouckry's statements, stating that they were incorrect in parts.

Regarding the ongoing negotiations aimed at reaching a ceasefire agreement and a prisoner exchange deal, reports from Israeli Channel 12 indicated that Sinwar remained steadfast in his demands during negotiations in Cairo, and there were no indications of reaching a compromise at this stage.
