L’attaque du Hamas, un échec pour les renseignements israéliens

The Hamas offensive in Israeli territory has raised questions about the role of Israeli intelligence and defense forces, which were completely caught off guard by the coordinated attack. Retired General Giora Eiland, former head of the National Security Council, compared the situation to the surprise attack during the Yom Kippur War 50 years ago. Israel’s military spokesperson acknowledged that discussions about the effectiveness of intelligence services would take place at a later time, as the priority is currently on combat.

The attack occurred on the 50th anniversary of the start of the Yom Kippur War, when the Israeli army was surprised by Syrian and Egyptian tank columns. The similarities between the two events were noted by General Giora Eiland, who emphasized that Israel was completely taken aback by the well-coordinated attack.

While the effectiveness of Israeli intelligence services will be discussed in due course, the army spokesperson stated that the focus at the moment is on the ongoing combat. They added that discussions will take place when necessary.

The Hamas offensive has disrupted the relative stability that had been maintained in the Palestinian territory of Gaza since the 10-day war between the two sides in 2021. Despite sporadic clashes claimed by the Islamic Jihad at the border, Hamas had generally refrained from engaging in violence. Israel had granted thousands of work permits to Gaza residents to ensure some economic peace, while maintaining a strict blockade on the territory.

However, the Saturday assault by hundreds of armed Hamas militants crossing the security barriers into Israeli territory and attacking border towns has dramatically changed the situation. Former US official Jonathan Panikoff described it as an intelligence failure and a failure of Israel’s security apparatus, which raises doubts about the previously perceived successful approach towards Gaza.

In conclusion, the Hamas offensive has raised concerns about the effectiveness of Israeli intelligence and defense forces, as they were caught off guard by the well-coordinated attack. The similarities to the surprise attack during the Yom Kippur War were noted, and discussions about the intelligence services’ performance will take place at a later time. The assault has disrupted the relative stability in Gaza, where Hamas had previously refrained from violence. The attack has been seen as an intelligence and security failure, challenging Israel’s approach towards Gaza.
