Yahya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in gaza and the planner of the Oct. 7th massacre, met with captured Israelis in one of the tunnels under Gaza, according to journalist Amit Segal.

According to the report, one of the women captured recounted how in the last days of captivity, she told her family that she had met Sinwar in the first days of the war. "He spoke fluent Hebrew to the cpatives, saying 'Hello, I am Yahya Sinwar. You are safest here. Nothing will happen to you."

Earlier, journalist Ben Caspit reported that during the last few years, Prime Minister Netanyahu was presented with six different operational plans to assassinate Sinwar, by the three most recent directors of the ISA: Yoram Cohen, Nadav Argaman, and Ronen Bar. Netanyahu declined them all.

The IDF's Arabic language spokesman, Avichai Edrei, spoke with the Sky News channel in Arabic, and reported that the Bibas family that had been abducted by Hamas from Nir Oz was being held by a different faction in the Khan Younis region. The different factions holding captives are causing delays in the prisoner exchange process and preventing the extension of the current ceasefire.

Adriana, one of the captives, told Mako about the conditions in Hamas captivity. According to her, they were fed only rice and small pitas that had to be divided into pieces to ensure everyone got some. They were unsure if there would be any food the next day.

She also claims that the captives were held above and below ground, and were not given sufficient calories, changes of clothes, or a chance to bathe. Only on their last day in capitivity were they given fresh clothes, after fifty days without a chance to bathe and still wearing the clothes in which they were captured.
