One of the most-wanted terrorists by the IDF, Hamas military commander Mohammad Deif broke years of silence when he resurfaced on Tuesday to declare that, "There will be no ceasefire without [Israel's] lifting of the siege" and stated, "Victory will be ours."

Deif warned that Israel's soldiers face fighters "craving to die," referring to Hamas fighters looking to achieve martyrdom in the fight against Israel.

The highly reclusive Deif has survived five previous assassination attempts by Israel, most recently when the IDF targeted his home in Khan Younis.

The house was not a occupied by Deif at the time, though two people were killed as a result of the explosion.

Deif, who is partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound, is the official head behind Hamas' warfare and al-Qassam brigades. He is held responsible for many terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians.
