The investigator reports that Al-Sinwar did not show any fear of him as an investigator, on the contrary, he was arguing with him all the time, indicating that he can read what he wrote about him after the first investigation and still maintains it: “An exceptional personality with his merits, wisdom, and culture, and he is a very religious man, a believer, and reconciled with his statements.” And his actions.
