U.S. Officials were recently surprised with news of a connection between the October 7 attack by Hamas and the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani by the United States, as exposed by Iranian leaders themselves.

Iran’s claims that the attack was partly in retaliation for Soleimani’s death was later denied by Hamas, but shed light on Iran’s involvement in the attack.

“We deny what was conveyed by a spokesperson for the Revolutionary Guards regarding the operation and its motives,” Hamas said. (Trending: Founding Dixie Chick Member Dies Unexpectedly)

“We emphasized several times the motives, with the primary one being the threats posed to Al-Aqsa Mosque. Any response from the Palestinian resistance is a reaction to occupation and aggression against the Palestinian people and holy sites.”

The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine has found the anger of Iranian leaders, with Israel’s response to the attack and the killing of an Iranian adviser near Damascus further raising tensions between Iran and Israel.

“The nature of the massacre, its repercussions and the failures emerging in connection with it to this day, as well as our moral and ethical duty to the fallen, the wounded, the kidnapped and the soldiers who put their lives on the line and fight to defend their homeland…require the state comptroller’s scrutiny of the personal responsibility of all ranks—civilian, military and governmental,” Israeli State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman said.

“I doubt the IRGC’s purported claim that the drone strike that killed Soleimani motivated the October 7 attacks by Hamas,” professor and former U.S. ambassador to Tunisia Gordon Gray said.

“Making the claim so long after the terror attacks undermines the credibility of the assertion.”

“I don’t think that there’s any question that Israel, like any country, has a right to self-defense,” Gray said. “That’s a concept that’s enshrined in the UN [United Nations] charter.

“I think the October 7 terrorist attacks provided just cause for the subsequent Israeli military operations, just as the 9/11 attacks provided justification for the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan.”

“I will not comment on various actions we take,” IDF Chief of the General Staff Herzi Halevi said.

“The IDF is working together with other security organizations throughout the Middle East, within the borders of the state, around the borders of the state.”

“We take whatever action necessary to make it very clear that we are very determined to defend the country, are willing to go far.”
