As outrage grew over his comments blaming the security and intelligence services for the devastating October 7 attack, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deletes the statement.

The premier was attacked by war cabinet member National Unity leader Benny Gantz, as well as Opposition Leader Yair Lapid, for writing a post on X insisting that he never received any warnings of Hamas “war intentions” at any stage.

Netanayhu also wrote that “all the security services, including the head of military intelligence and the head of the Shin Bet, were of the opinion that Hamas was deterred and wanted to come to a settlement.”
