An Arab country close to Hamas is calling on the terrorist group to lay down its arms, a report in the Israeli press said late on Tuesday. 

Top Arab officials reportedly are telling Hamas “You have achieved nothing, what kind of victory are you talking about?” In response, Hamas complained that the “situation is bad” and that it is suffering from an ammunition shortage, according to the Hebrew-language report from Israel’s Channel 12.

As the Arab officials call on Hamas to end the war, Hamas’ leader, Yehya Sinwar, is also reportedly suffering from complicated pneumonia.

Sinwar’s location is not known. The Israeli press notes that despite speculation that Sinwar has fled to Egypt, Israel has no intelligence indicating that he has left the Gaza Strip. It is believed in Israel that Sinwar remains underground in the Khan Yunis area. The IDF continues to operate there, the Israeli report says. 

Israeli sources have said that reaching Sinwar and communicating with him is “like crossing the Red Sea.” As Ramadan approaches, however, they envision an opportunity to advance the stalled negotiations with the terror group over the remaining hostages it holds. The captives were seized in the October 7 attack on southern Israel.
