Speaking at a display made by the Military Intelligence Directorate’s so-called intelligence collection and technical spoils unit — known by its Hebrew acronym Amshat — Defense Minister Yoav Gallant says Hamas intelligence findings recovered by the IDF in Gaza are bringing a “realistic” hostage deal closer.

“You can see a small part of [what the IDF recovered] here, missiles, explosives, mines, many maps, communication devices, documents, computers, hard drives,” says Gallant.

“We penetrated into the heart of Hamas’s most sensitive places, and are using their intelligence against them,” he says.

“The more we deepen this operation, the closer we are to a realistic deal in order to return the hostages,” Gallant adds.

The display will be shown to government ministers today.
