“Mohammed Deif is alive,” Mashaal said. “Israelis failed to kill him. But they succeeded in killing his wife and his two children. … Mohammed Deif is still alive, and will continue to fight the Israeli aggression and occupation. Inshallah [God willing].”

Israel Defense Forces Chief of General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz surmised that Deif remains alive in a recent interview with Israel Hayom.

“You know, there is meat, there is milk and there is parve,” he said. “Sometimes there are signs that the man exists, and sometimes there are indications that he does not exist. In my opinion, he is still with us.”
