Highlights: A senior security official said in a closed conversation that "a very large intelligence effort is underway" to locate the Hamas leader. According to him, Sinwar underestimated the strength of the IDF's response and is "still in shock from the maneuver and the actions at Shifa" Meanwhile, the defense establishment believes that the operations in the southern Gaza Strip will complete the goals of the war. The expansion of ground operations towards Khan Yunis and Rafah will be more effective than the first stage of the northern Gaza Strip.

A senior security source claimed in a closed conversation that the assassination of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar "will lead to a change in the formula for releasing hostages," and that intelligence efforts are being made to locate him: "A very large intelligence effort is underway on Sinwar's head." That's how Walla found out tonight (Sunday)!

Meanwhile, the defense establishment estimates that during the next 24 hours it will be possible to publish military achievements about attacks on Hamas that impaired the ability of Sinjan and Mohammed Deif to control the forces on the ground.

According to assessments, the expansion of ground operations towards Khan Yunis and Rafah will be more effective than the first stage of fighting in the northern Gaza Strip. The activity in the south, towards Hamas' last centers of control in the southern Gaza Strip, will complete the goals set by the political echelon and will lead to the destruction of Hamas' governmental and military capabilities.

The senior security official clarified in the closed conversation that "Sinjan holds a messianic outlook but acts in an informed manner. He is a cruel man. Killer. He murdered Palestinians whom he suspected of collaborating with Israel through a keffiyeh."
He added that "before October 7, he was unable to jumpstart the issue of prisoners and missing persons with Israel."

"Sinwar estimated that the arenas of conflict in Judea and Samaria, the interior of Israel and Lebanon, and the arena would unite against us. He was wrong. He also underestimated Israeli cohesion. He thought Israel was weak. Sinjan also misjudged the IDF's military response. He is still in shock from the maneuver to Gaza, and certainly from the destruction of the tunnels in Shifa, Gaza and other places."
