Iran helped plan Hamas' surprise attack on Israel

Iran helped plan Hamas attack on Israel that killed at least 700 and gave the green light for the assault at a meeting in Beirut last Monday: Islamic Revolutionary Guards devised land, air and sea assault that has left Middle East on brink of all-out war

Senior members of Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah claimed that Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel that killed at least 600 people was given the green light by Iranian security officials.

Hamas plotted the air, land and sea invasions with help from officers of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps 

The official go-ahead for the attack was allegedly given at a Monday meeting in Beirut. 

Four other Iranian backed military groups were believed to be at the meeting, including members of Hamas and Hezbollah. 

Secretary of State Antony Blinken claims he has ‘not yet seen evidence’ that Iran was involved in the attack.

‘We don’t have any information at this time to corroborate this account,’ an American official told the Wall Street Journal. 

The Israeli government formally declared war Sunday and gave the green light for ‘significant military steps’ to retaliate against Hamas for its surprise attack from the Gaza Strip.

More than 24 hours after Hamas launched its unprecedented incursion out of Gaza, Israeli forces were still trying to crush the last groups of militant fighters holed up in several towns of southern Israel.

At least 600 people have reportedly been killed in Israel and more than 300 have been killed in Gaza as Israeli airstrikes pound the territory.

More than 100 people are being held hostage, Hamas claimed, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities were still trying to determine how many civilians and soldiers were seized by Hamas fighters during the mayhem and taken back to Gaza.

This is a developing story.
