Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, the IDF’s Arabic-language spokesman, says Israeli forces have raided a luxurious home belonging to the deputy chief of Hamas’s military wing in the central Gaza Strip.

Marwan Issa’s vacation home in Gaza’s Bureij features a swimming pool, a large yard and expensive furniture, Adraee says on X, attaching footage from the residence.

“This is further evidence of the complete disconnect between the Hamas leadership, including the leaders of the military wing, who live a life of luxury and enjoy great wealth, and a large segment of the Gaza population that issues distress calls for donations and international aid,” he says.

“Hamas leaders are in heaven and Gaza residents are in hell,” Adraee adds.
