Report: Hamas got intel before Oct. 7 from Gazan day laborers working in Israel

In its meticulous planning of the October 7 onslaught, the Hamas terror group gathered some of its intelligence from Gazan day laborers who were allowed to enter Israel every day to work, The Washington Post reports, citing various intelligence officials from multiple countries.

Many of the day laborers worked in the same communities that were targeted and ravaged by Hamas, with entire families shot, burned and mauled to death in their homes.

The report also says evidence gathered from maps and other equipment found on terrorists’ bodies shows that Hamas had intended for at least some of the infiltrators to make it all the way to the West Bank, to start a wider war.
