Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri made an embarrassing slip up while being interviewed by Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV on Sunday, with the clip picked up by the Israel Defense Forces Spokesman unit and re-broadcast on social media for the world to see.

The Hamas spokesman said: “This is something the people should hear, we aren’t leading our people today to destruction. We are leading our people to death,” he said, before correcting himself to say, “I mean to confrontation with the occupier.”

The video was posted to YouTube, where the Hamas Gaza account added another translation, apparently to correct the IDF’s version, noting that Hamas was leading Gazans “‘to the death sorry to the confrontation,’ he said.”

His comments were made regarding ongoing Hamas rocket fire, and Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, aimed at halting it, which entered its seventh day on Monday.
