Finance minister claims Israel will kill Hamas chiefs in response to future Gaza rockets

Finance Minister Israel Katz of Likud claims Yahya Sinwar, the Hamas chief in Gaza, will “be wiped out” if further rockets are fired from Gaza after the recent hostilities in the Strip between the terror group and Israel.

“Any strike will be answered with the killing of senior Hamas officials,” Katz says in an interview with Channel 12 news.

His comments come after Sinwar was seen in public for the first time since the 11 days of fighting ended with a ceasefire that took effect early Friday.
