Threats made by Israel's Shin Bet Director Ronen Bar against the movement's leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, reflect the political, security and military distress that Israeli leaders are suffering from, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.

"The [Israeli] entity's suffering has increased due to the equations imposed by the Palestinian resistance in Gaza on the Israeli occupation, as well as the heroic and legendary steadfastness of our people and their valiant resistance that has been intensifying in the West Bank and Jerusalem," Barhoum said in a statement.

He added that the threats made by the leader of Israel's domestic intelligence service against Sinwar "are not new, and they do not scare our Palestinian people or the leadership of the resistance."

Shin Bet chief Ronet Bar warned Sinwar that he must consider his steps carefully and decide if he will choose the reconstruction of Gaza or a different path, according to Israel's Channel 12.
