A top Hamas official hinted during an interview with Lebanese media that another attack against Israel is in the works, likely bigger than Oct. 7. 

Osama Hamdan, a senior representative of Hamas in Lebanon, said during an interview earlier this week that a “war of liberation” was coming.

The interview was transcribed by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), according to The Daily Wire.

“You said that if the Israelis would make new arrests, after all the prisoners are released from [Israeli] prisons, you would carry out another operation,” the interviewer said during the interview, according to the outlet. “So can you promise another October 7?”

“I can promise that a war of liberation is coming, not just another October 7,” Hamdan answered

The interviewer asked if this attack would happen soon in the future, to which Hamdan answered, “I do not think it is far off.”

Hamdan also referred to the Oct. 7 attacks on Israel as "acts of resistance."

Israel declared war on Hamas after the terrorist organization orchestrated an attack on them, killing about 1,200 Israelis and taking hundreds more hostage, including women and children.
