A senior Hamas member has issued a terrifying warning, claiming that the terror group is “not far off” from launching a “war of liberation” against Israel on a scale much larger than the October 7 attack.
Osama Hamdan made the chilling claims in an interview with Lebanese media outlet Bel Moubashar Online.
He promised that “a war of liberation is coming, not just another October 7”, and suspected it would be launched soon.
Hamdan also showed no regret for the October 7 attacks, which resulted in the death of 1,200 Israelis.

When asked by the interviewer if he had any remorse for his actions, he questioned: “Regret for shattering an entire division of the occupation army?”, implying that it was the right thing to do.
The interviewer also asked Hamdan if he could go back in time to the day before the October 7 attack, would Hamas still do it?
Hamdan replied: “Why would some people assume that we would go back on our acts of resistance?”
The pause in fighting allowed for the exchange of dozens of hostages, as well as facilitating the entry of humanitarian aid into Gaza.
After seven days of a truce, the IDF said fighting will resume after they intercepted a missile fired from Gaza an hour before the deadline on the morning of December 1.

The IDF has said up to two million people should move to al Mawasi, a 1km by 14km "barren wilderness" in southern Gaza, however, the World Health Organisation has called the move a recipe for disaster.
An adviser to the Israeli PM has insisted there are "designated safer zones" for people to go to, after top US officials called on the IDF to guarantee it protected civilians.
During the week-long ceasefire, 110 hostages held by Hamas and 240 Palestinian prisoners held by Israel were released.
Since the October 7 attack, Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry says more than 15,800 people have been killed in Israel's retaliatory campaign, including about 6,000 children.
