Dead or alive? Hamas: Mohammed Deif 'Death Certificate' is a Fake


A "death certificate" said to be that of Hamas's military leader Mohammed Deif and currently circulating online has been dismissed as a forgery by the terrorist group.

At least three people were killed in an Israeli Air Force strike which targeted the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigade chief, two of whom were identified as his wife and son. Hamas claimed, however, that the terrorist mastermind himself escaped with his life - but specifics about his condition following the attack have been conspicuously absent, leading to speculation he may in fact have been killed or severely injured.
