The Shin Bet has released footage from the interrogation of a commander in Hamas’s elite Nukhba unit who calls on operatives in the terror group to surrender.
“I advise everyone to surrender, because your fate otherwise is death,” Muhammad Nasser Suleiman Abu Namer is heard saying.
Abu Namer was arrested by Shin Bet and IDF fighters deep in a tunnel under the southern Gaza city of Khan Yunis.
The suspect is later heard saying that he was arrested with two other Hamas fighters but that they did not try to resist when the IDF busted through the door of their tunnel.
“We made a decision that we don’t want to fight and as soon as the army comes we will turn ourselves in,” says Abu Namer.
“We sat in the room, we put all the weapons outside the room… We sat and waited. When the army arrived, we raised our hands and surrendered.”
