Mohammed Deif: elusive Hamas military chief defying Israel

Hamas’s top military commander Mohammed Deif, who has survived assassination attempts and defied the Middle East’s most powerful forces, is proving a redoubtable foe for Israel in its latest incursion in Gaza. As Israel presses its deadly offensive aimed at halting militant rocket fire and eliminating Hamas’s tunnel network, Deif has warned there will be no truce in the Palestinian enclave until Israel ends its eight-year blockade. Born in the Khan Yunis refugee camp in southern Gaza in 1965, Deif has been involved in Hamas’s operations for more than 20 years, plotting suicide bombings inside Israel, kidnapping soldiers, firing rockets and helping plan the tunnels used to launch attacks.
