Israeli officials have reportedly indirectly warned the leader of the Hamas terror group in Gaza that it could retaliate against the group for encouraging a series of recent deadly terror attacks. While Hamas has not taken responsibility for most of the attacks since March 22 that have left 19 people in Israel and the West Bank dead, terror group chief Yahya Sinwar has repeatedly called for Palestinians to assault Israelis and the group has publicly praised the perpetrators, encouraging more attacks. The terror group also claimed responsibility for an attack that killed a security officer guarding the West Bank settlement of Ariel on April 29.

According to Channel 12 news, diplomatic and security officials relayed a message to Sinwar that the Ariel attack, coupled with his messages championing terror, gave Israel freedom to respond militarily in Gaza. The message also included a personal threat against Sinwar, whom Israel has termed a “terror supporter” who may be dealt with in kind.
