Tel Aviv, Jan 7 (IANS): The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has revealed a photo of Mohammed Deif, the military commander of Hamas who has been elusive and the whereabouts of him not known for long.

The spokesperson of IDF Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari revealed the photo for the first time, saying that it was found among some 70 million digital files recovered by the IDF in Gaza.

The image was revealed after a different photo of Deif, who has not been seen in public for years, began circulating in Israeli media

The IDF in a statement on Saturday said that the data recovered also includes details and information about Hamas officials who are located outside Gaza and that this had provided the army with important intelligence for the ongoing war.
