The billionaire owner of the X platform, Elon Musk, has declined an invitation by a senior Hamas official to tour Gaza and see the devastating outcome of Israel’s war on the Palestinian enclave.

On Tuesday, Osama Hamdan, a member of the Hamas politburo, told a press conference in the Lebanese capital of Beirut that the Palestinian Resistance Movement would be happy to show Musk “the extent of the massacres and destruction committed against the people of Gaza, in compliance with the standards of objectivity and credibility.” 

Asked by a user on X (formerly Twitter) to comment on the invitation, Musk replied that “(it) seems a bit dangerous there right now.” “But I do believe that a long-term prosperous Gaza is good for all sides,” he added.

Hamas’ invitation came after Musk paid a visit to Israel and met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Musk also had a conversation with Netanyahu during which he agreed with the latter’s stance on Hamas, arguing that “those who are intent on murder must be neutralized.” 

Musk’s trip to Israel came after the billionaire found himself in hot water over accusations that he harbored ‘antisemitic’ sentiments. 

Until a ceasefire was announced on Friday, November 24, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that over 15,000 Palestinians, including over 6,150 children and more than 4,000, with another 36,000 wounded.
