Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar’s days “are numbered,” a senior Biden administration official said Thursday, vowing to make sure justice is served.

“I think it’s safe to say his days are numbered… He has American blood on his hands; 38 Americans were killed on October 7, and he is still holding a number of American hostages,” the official told reporters during a call to discuss National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s trip to Israel and Palestine.

“So, it doesn’t matter how long it takes, but justice will be served,” said the official who was speaking on condition of anonymity.

Sinwar and a handful of other Hamas officials planned the October 7 attack on Israel, killing over 1,000 people and taking hundreds more hostage. It was one of the deadliest attacks Israel has ever faced.
