IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says Iran directly aided Hamas ahead of the October 7 attack on southern Israel.

“Iran directly aided Hamas before the war, with training, supplying weapons, money, and technological know-how,” Hagari says in a press conference.

“Even now, Iranian aid to Hamas in the form of intelligence and online incitement against the State of Israel continues,” he says.
