A senior Israeli cabinet minister has threatened the leader of the militant Hamas movement ruling Gaza.

Yoav Gallant said “Yehiyeh Sinwar’s time is limited” and “he will not end his life in an old folks’ home”.

Speaking at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference, Mr Gallant vowed there would be another Israeli campaign in Gaza and said Mr Sinwar better “recalculate his route”.

Israel and Hamas recently stepped back from the brink of their fourth war in a decade thanks to an Egyptian ceasefire.

Palestinian militants had fired 460 rockets and mortar shells into Israel, while the Israeli military carried out air strikes on 160 Gaza targets.

Fourteen Palestinians, including 12 militants, were killed, while a Palestinian labourer working in Israel was killed by a rocket from Gaza.
