Hamas official promises worse attack on Israel than Oct. 7: “A future liberation battle, and not just Oct. 7”

Interviewer: “Were you to go back to Oct. 6 [2023], would you carry out Oct. 7 (i.e., Hamas’ massacre on Israel)?”

Hamas Political Bureau member Osama Hamdan: “Why do some people assume we would relinquish our role and our resistance?”

Interviewer: “In other words, there is no regret?”

Osama Hamdan: “Regret over how we crushed the Gaza Division, an entire division in the [Israeli] occupation army?”

Interviewer: “You told me that if the Israelis will come back to carry out new arrests after emptying the prisons (i.e., Israeli-Hamas exchange deal), you would carry out an additional operation (i.e., terror attack). Can you promise a new Oct. 7?”

Osama Hamdan: “I can promise a future liberation battle, and not just Oct. 7.”

Interviewer: “In the foreseeable future?”

Osama Hamdan: “I don’t think it will be long. What happened on Oct. 7 and what happened after it clarified that the future of this [Zionist] entity in the region is not guaranteed.”

The Israeli Gaza Division was not destroyed, but its base was attacked.


Hamas war on Israel October 2023 - At least 1,200 Israelis, including over 1,000 civilians, were murdered and over 4,800 wounded, in addition to approximately 244 who were abducted into the Gaza Strip (including 110 later released or liberated and at least 26 later killed), in a Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists broke through Israel's security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023. During the massacre, the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents. Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched the Swords of Iron War to counter the Hamas terror threat. Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas' terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north. Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war. A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas. The deal was subsequently extended with additional releases, until Hamas violated the agreement and resumed attacking on Dec. 1, 2023.
