On Oct. 7, 2023, Hamas launched a brutal invasion of Israel, murdering 1,400 innocent individuals, including 30 Americans. As the war nears its second month, it was recently revealed that officials knew about Hamas’ attack a year before it was carried out.
Thus far, Hamas has mercilessly murdered over 1,400 individuals, including 30 Americans. The Israeli government reportedly had plans resembling Hamas’ attack, which they labeled “Jericho Wall.”

An analyst with Unit 8200, the largest unit in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), pointed out that one of Hamas’ training exercises was significantly similar to the plans held by the Israeli government. A senior officer in the Holy Land’s government praised the analyst but said his comments were directed toward a “totally imaginative” situation.
The analyst later reminded the officer about the events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
“We already underwent a similar experience 50 years ago on the southern front in connection with a scenario that seemed imaginary, and history may repeat itself if we are not careful,” the analyst said.
The plans in the Israeli government’s possession bore stark similarities to the Oct. 7, 2023, attack. The blueprints revealed the use of paragliders, a rocket attack, and the usage of drones to strike border defenses.
A former U.S. agent of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) compared Israel’s “intelligence failure” to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in America.
“The Israeli intelligence failure on Oct. 7 is sounding more and more like our 9.11,” former CIA agent Ted Singer told The New York Times. “The failure will be a gap in analysis to paint a convincing picture to military and political leadership that Hamas had the intention to launch the attack when it did.”
A memorandum from September 2016 also showed Hamas’ intention to increase its number of terrorists to 40,000 by 2020.
The Holy Land and Hamas recently reached a four-day truce agreement to allow for hostages to be released from both sides. Despite the consensus being agreed to, Hamas terrorists recently murdered three Israelis and wounded 16 individuals in Jerusalem, before they were stopped by off-duty soldiers.
