Yahya Sinwar, the mastermind behind Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack, made chilling remarks this week about what the terrorist group has planned.

His remarks come after 1,200 Israelis were slaughtered, 5,300+ were wounded, and more than 240 were kidnapped in the surprise attacks last month.

Arutz Sheva reported that Sinwar, who is a top target for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), said on Thursday, “The leaders of the occupation should know, October 7 was just a rehearsal.”

He made the remarks amid a temporary ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that in which the terrorists are freeing some of the terrorists in exchange for Israel releasing numerous Palestinian women and minors who are convicted criminals and terrorists.

Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad said during an interview late last month that Hamas was ready to launch as many repeats of their October 7 terrorist attack, dubbed the “Al-Aqsa Flood,” as needed until everyone is Israel was murdered.

“Israel is a country that has no place on our land,” he declared. “We must remove that country, because it constitutes a security, military, and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nation, and must be finished. We are not ashamed to say this, with full force.”

“We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again,” he said. “The Al-Aqsa Flood is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth, because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight. Will we have to pay a price? Yes, and we are ready to pay it. We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs.”

Later in the interview, he said that “the occupation must come to an end,” adding that he was not just talking about Gaza, but all of what he claimed were “the Palestinian lands.”

“Does that mean the annihilation of Israel?” the news anchor asked.

He responded, “Yes, of course.”

“The existence of Israel is illogical,” he concluded. “The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears. It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 – everything we do is justified.”
