Hamas has yet to officially comment on the matter.

 

Sinwar is the most senior of the Palestinian prisoners released in the 2011 Shalit prisoner exchange deal. A year and a half ago, he was chosen to serve as Hamas's leader in the strip, becoming the third most important official in the terror group, following Saleh al-Arouri and Ismail Haniyeh.
