Israel knows location of Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar, but he is using hostages as human shields: reports

January it was reported

The Israeli military knows the location of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar but has not launched strikes against him because he is using Israeli hostages as human shields, according to multiple reports in Israeli media.

So why are some people saying that if only Biden revealed Sinwar's location that there would have been no need for fighting in Gaza

Maybe, but here's the bigger question:

Since Israel invaded Gaza, it has made its aims clear:

1) retrieve the hostages

2) get Hamas to surrender

Biden, who has been moving towards open support for Hamas for the last couple of months and seems incredibly desperate for Rafiach not to fall, suddenly announces he has intel - he knows where Hamas' leaders are!

Now, the same guy who's complaining that Israel has killed too many civilians (and as the guy who botched the withdrawal from Afghanistan, he knows all about killing civilians), the same state department that announced "We can't find any evidence that Israel committed war crimes but we're sure they did, we just know it!", suddenly announce that they have information that could end the war. Why did they not announce this 3 months ago and save thousands of civilian lives in Gaza? Why wait until now?


  1. Biden's announcement implies it knows where the leaders are and that Israel could take them out without harming the remaining hostages (if any are still alive). This is far different from "We know where he is but we can't get to him."
    In addition, Biden claims to have more knowledge of the tunnels that Israel doesn't have.
    In addition, Biden has been removing sanctions from and/or transferring money to Lebanon (ie. Hezbollah), Qatar (ie Hamas), and the Houthis (ie Iran) while shouting that he's going to sanction Israel if it doesn't do what he demands. Never mind the billions he gave Iran. Yet you keep defending him.

    1. But Biden didn't say what you claim.
      The report was based on the claims of anonymous sources from which you can not actually deduce anything. Thus you are simply letting your biases run wild

    2. The Biden administration, working urgently to stave off a full-scale Israeli invasion of Rafah, is offering Israel valuable assistance in an effort to persuade it to hold back, including sensitive intelligence to help the Israeli military pinpoint the location of Hamas leaders and find the group’s hidden tunnels, according to four people familiar with the U.S. offers.

    3. The Biden administration is working to save Hamas from a final battle that will end 99% of its military capabilities in order to appease Iran.
      The value of US intelligence in the wake of 9/11 and even more recently, the withdrawal of Afghanistan, is worth its weight in Israeli liras. Not shekels, liras.
