He added: “He is exactly like Bin Laden. This is an arch-murderer.”
The Hamas attack on Israel was planned by an enigmatic man who has been labeled the new Osama Bin Laden and has survived seven attempted murders.
Israel’s Most Wanted Man has been Mohammed Deif for many years.
The 58-year-old is permanently confined to a wheelchair after attempts to kill him resulted in the loss of both of his hands, legs, and an eye.
He stays alive by travelling to different safe houses every evening or hiding out in Gaza’s network of underground tunnels, which he helped plan.
He is only depicted in one image.
He even changed his name to Deif, which in Arabic means “The Guest,” to symbolize his many transfers from one family to another. He was born in a refugee camp.
Mohammed Diab Ibrahim al-Masri was born in Gaza in 1965.
He made a recording as his soldiers were pouring into Israel to murder or kidnap men, women, and children in his capacity as leader of the al-Qassam brigades, Hamas’ military arm.
He pleaded for the Palestinians to “drive out the occupiers and tear down the walls.”
He also urged followers in other nations to join the battle, raising concerns of a global uprising.
After the attack, he will be “like a god to the young,” according to Mkhaimar Abusada, a politics lecturer at Gaza’s Al-Azhar University.
