Top Secret Documents Cited by NYT and Reveal: Israel Knew One Year About Hamas Attack

Israeli officials had, more than a year before it was committed, detailed information about Hamas’ plan to launch unprecedented attack against Israel, though they did not consider the scenario realisticthe American newspaper New York Times reported yesterday Thursday, citing top secret documents.

The Israeli military intelligence service had in its hands a document of about 40 pages of the Palestinian Islamist movement in which attack was described in detail, point by point such as the one carried out by members of its military arm, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, on October 7, resulting in the deaths of some 1,200 people in Israel, according to the report.

The document, which circulated in Israeli espionage circles under the code name “Jericho Wall” (“Jericho Wall”), it did not specify when the attack would be launched, but it did contain specifics about how Israel’s security measures would be overwhelmed to then raid military bases and cities.

More specifically, the document referred to rocket barrages and drones that would destroy security cameras and automated machine guns, before fighters crossed over to the Israeli side by parachute, in vehicles and on foot — elements that were at the heart of the October 7 attack.

But it “could not be ascertained” whether the plan had been “fully” approved by its leadership Hamasnor if and to what extent it could become a reality, stated an internal document of the Israeli army that came into the possession of the Times of New York, as relayed by the Athens Agency.
