Washington Post Confirms Disturbing Truth in Israel Crisis
The Biden administration continues to say that they have no conclusive evidence that Iran helped plan or orchestrate Hamas’ murderous attack on Israel last Saturday, but another report has confirmed that Iran was indeed involved in the attack.
The publication reported that officers of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had been working with Hamas and other Islamic terrorists in planning the attacks, which included firing thousands of rockets and invading Israel by land, sea, and air.
“Details of the operation were refined during several meetings in Beirut attended by IRGC officers and representatives of four Iran-backed militant groups, including Hamas, which holds power in Gaza, and Hezbollah, a Shiite militant group and political faction in Lebanon, they said,” the WSJ report stated.
The Post confirmed that Iran played a “key” role leading up to the attack. “The Palestinian militants behind the surprise weekend attack on Israel began planning the assault at least a year ago, with key support from Iranian allies who provided military training and logistical help as well as tens of millions of dollars for weapons, current and former Western and Middle Eastern intelligence officials said Monday.”
“[C]urrent and former intelligence officials said the assault bore hallmarks of Iranian support, and noted officials in Tehran have boasted publicly about the huge sums in military aid provided to Hamas in recent years,” the Post stated. “Current and former intelligence officials confirmed that Iran had provided technical help to Hamas in manufacturing the more than 4,000 rockets and armed drones launched into Israel since Saturday.”
“The amount of training, logistics, communication, personnel, and weapons required provides a massive footprint,” former CIA Senior Operations Officer Marc Polymeropoulos told the Post, pointing out that Hamas’ use of paragliders “surely required training outside of Gaza.”
Jonathan Finer, the White House’s deputy national security adviser, said on ABC’s Good Morning America, “I think what we can be quite clear about is that Iran is broadly complicit in these attacks for having supported Hamas going back decades, for having provided financial support, for having provided training, for having provided weapons to Hamas,” but protested, “What we don’t have is direct information that shows Iranian involvement in ordering or planning the attacks that took place over the last couple of days.”
