The military responds to a report by Channel 13 news that there had been some unspecified indications the night before Hamas launched its deadly terror attack on southern Israel.

According to the report, senior intelligence officers discussed the signs on Friday night and agreed to continue the conversation in the morning.

IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says there were no major intelligence warnings, but confirms there had been some signs.

“There was no such warning. The signs that came up hours before could be based on different intelligence signs,” Hagari says, adding that the military would investigate everything surrounding the terror group’s surprise attack.
