Hamas militants boast of detaining "Israeli officer": photo shows Putin's cousin Medvedchuk
The Hamas terrorist organization has boasted that it has allegedly captured Israeli officer Yitzhak Brick. The militants claim that he was one of those who led the Israeli Defense Forces' preparations for a ground operation in the Gaza Strip.
However, there was a nuance to the officer's detention - the Palestinian media spread a photo of Viktor Medvedchuk, the godfather of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, instead of Brick. The information appeared on October 28 in publics close to Hamas (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The militants boasted of the "successes" of the al-Qassam Brigade, which is a paramilitary offshoot of the Hamas group. The terrorists claimed to have captured retired Israeli officer Yitzhak Brick. The "joyful" event topped the news feeds in the Gaza Strip, but the militants eventually became confused about the "captured officer."
Hamas boasted of Brick's capture, but for some reason handed over the Russian dictator's godfather, Viktor Medvedchuk, instead.
Retired Israeli general Yitzhak Brick served in the armored corps as a brigade, division and troop commander, and was a commander of military schools. He took part in combat operations as a reserve company commander in the Yom Kippur War. He served as the commissioner of the Israeli military ombudsman for about ten years.
After Hamas' attack on Israel on October 7, Brick's prediction of the Israeli-Palestinian war was mentioned online. Now the officer analyzes military events and gives advice to the Israeli Defense Forces.
As a reminder, Viktor Medvedchuk, the godfather of the Russian dictator, who is accused of treason in Ukraine, has created a new "political movement " in Russia. Medvedchuk's new project, called "Other Ukraine," brings together well-known Ukrainophobes and so-called experts from Medvedchuk's banned channels.
Earlier it was reported that on the afternoon of October 30, footage appeared on the network showing a significant advance of the Israeli Defense Forces in the Gaza Strip. IDF tanks were spotted on the outskirts of Gaza City, which is the largest settlement in the Palestinian National Authority.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the head of the IDF press service, Daniel Hagari, called on residents of the northern part of the Gaza Strip to evacuate to the south. The appeal to civilians came after the start of the IDF ground operation against Hamas terrorists.
