Who is Ahmed Sian?
- According to the IDF, Ahmed Siam was a company commander in Hamas’ Naser Radwan Company.
- He was attacked by a warplane while hiding in the al-Buraq school in Gaza City along with other Hamas operatives under his command.
- The IDF said it received information collected by the Shin Bet and the Military Intelligence Directorate about his whereabouts. The Givati Brigade troops piloted the fighter jet to attack the place where the Hamas terrorist was hiding.
- The attack on Siam came shortly after the IDF accused it of holding about 1,000 civilians hostage at Gaza City’s Al-Rantisi Hospital, which houses Gaza’s only pediatric cancer ward.
- Israel said Siam’s actions were evidence that Hamas was using Gaza’s civilian population as human shields for terrorist purposes. The Israeli military also said Hamas was using hospitals as operating bases and hiding weapons in tunnels underneath, although Hamas has denied these accusations.
Israeli forces have also killed several other Hamas operatives linked to the Oct. 7 attacks, in which the Palestinian group launched an unprecedented attack on Israel. Hamas operatives, including Ali Qadi, Muetaz Eid, Zachariah Abu Ma’amar, Joad Abu Shmalah, Belal Alqadra and Merad Abu Merad, were all eliminated by Israel.
According to the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza, an estimated 11,000 Palestinians have died in the war between Israel and Hamas.
