Report: Non-final IDF probe finds various misjudgments by troops on Oct. 7

A report claims to detail some non-final findings from the IDF’s probe into operational failures during the response to Hamas’s October 7 terror onslaught.

According to Channel 12 news, which doesn’t cite a source, the military has found that in some cases forces didn’t seek contact with terrorists, and that commanders erred by deciding to wait for more forces and intelligence rather than entering targeted towns as quickly as possible.

There were many cases on October 7-9 in which Israeli troops hit fellow Israeli forces by mistake, according to the reported preliminary findings.

The military is reportedly considering appointing a new temporary commander for the Gaza Division instead of Barak Hiram, who was tapped before the war to fill that role but was embroiled in several controversies over his decision-making on October 7 and during the war.
