Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar “doesn’t care about his nation and is acting like a little Hitler in his bunker.”

In the final days of his life, German Chancellor Adolf Hitler hid out in a Berlin bunker and blamed the German people for the country’s defeat in World War II. They “deserved to perish,” he said.

“[Sinwar] cares about his people as much as he does about a speck of dust,” says Netanyahu.
