A damning new report has exposed a desperate plea from an IDF intelligence sergeant that was tragically brushed aside mere days before Hamas’ devastating massacre in southern Israel on October 7.

According to Channel 12 News, a female sergeant from the IDF’s elite Unit 8200 sent an urgent email to several of her superiors, remarking how Hamas’ training exercises were mirror images of Hamas’ “Jericho Wall” plan obtained by IDF intelligence a year prior to October 7.

The 40-page confiscated Hamas document provides explicit details on how to obliterate Israel’s Gaza defense systems. It reportedly calls for a barrage of rockets at the outset of an attack, drones to knock out security cameras, and gunmen to pour into Israel en masse via paragliders, motorcycles, and on foot.

In her letter, the female officer warned that Hamas was actively rehearsing these scenarios, poised to execute them at any moment.

“The raid training into the country’s territory indicates that the ‘Jericho Walls’ plan is no longer just on paper,” she wrote.

“It is likely that we will not be able to provide a long enough warning to prepare for preventing the event,” she added, urging her superiors to “think about formulating coping strategies for when the event actually happens to minimize the damage.”

Despite her dire warnings, the sergeant’s words were inexplicably ignored.

Responding to these and other damning allegations, the IDF announced a thorough investigation into the events leading up to October 7.

“The IDF is investigating the events of October 7 and the preceding incidents. These investigations aim to learn and draw lessons for future combat,” an IDF spokesperson told Channel 12 News. “The investigations are ongoing, and findings will be presented transparently to the public once concluded.”

However, for countless Israelis still traumatized by the horrors of Oct. 7, such assurances ring painfully hollow. The young IDF sergeant’s haunting words will forever serve as a chilling reminder of how Israeli leadership failed to protect its citizens from the worst massacre in Jewish history since the Holocaust.

    The generals, in alignment with the courts are trying to create a smokescreen. A twisted reality. He who ran to prevent the massacre, killing terrorists, kis a murderer. The generals who did not send the army, for 8 hours! Until the massacre has acieved manynof its well planned goals are then not guilty of murder. Orwel’s 1984 on steroids.

    Sadly, true. Hopefully soon, all who should be, will pay the price for their arrogance and ignorance.

    May I say that the boxes that state fill in here and there are non existent. I just guess where they would be, there is not even a line or prompter. It appears to me that so far, on two occasions, women are seeing these threats, but why do you have them in the military sect if they ignored. Their voices are just as important, if not more so then their male counterparts. If it were not for them who are faithful and true, your men would have nothing to boast on them. It’s a disturbing pattern which needs to be rectified. You gave these women these roles in army, where it’s obvious you won’t put men in, not even a gun? How are they to defend themselves. It’s a sad day when they are treated as inferior. Even radio or letter are ignored! What more is there to say.

    Women are used for intelligence for their superior gut feel of a situation or impending one. Arrogance of men resulted in 10.07

    Ignoring the report and taking so long to respond once it happened, makes one fear the worst: Did the government actually want a war, to diffuse attention on the ongoing internal plea for Netanyahu to step down? Did they miscalculate the damage that it would cause? So many unanswered questions. If this happens to be the case, it is unforgivable.

    In the Imperial Japanese army, a disgraced general would fall on his sword, given the gravity of this catastrophe, I would like to see them do the same, only here they have no shame!!

    Oy Rebecca This is a very cynical viewpoint
    I think that Netanyahu loves the Jewish people and would only want to protect us to the best of his ability. If i am wrong G-d help us but i road think he has proven himself in his past actions

    Oy Malka!
    Sadly, cynicism is now rampant in the critics’ corner!
    Our IDF officers who arrogantly ignored our excellent female IDF spotters, whose specific task is to do exactly what they did : observe and report anything suspicious on our Southern borders!
    The bloody war we’re engaged in, replacing the space, volume and dynamic arguments about the judicial laws. We know how divided we were, with daily protests of hundreds turning to thousands. שינת חינם Sinat chinam (baseless hatred) is now the price we pay for our hundreds of fallen heroes.
    On 7/10, 900 civilians, nearly 300 IDF soldiers were slaughtered and 240 plus hostages taken to Gaza. More than 330 fallen IDF soldiers since 27/10/2023 when we entered Gaza. How many korbanot do we have to pay for our baseless hatred?
    Only if we unite, be one, one people, exercising BASELESS LOVE, caring as we well know how to, thoughtful of each to the other, only then can we progress to having all our hostages come back into their open parents’, spouses’/partners’ grandparents’ and siblings’ arms.

    As I began to read this article my first thoughts, sadly but true, were, if it was a man sounding the alarm would they have listened and responded differently? The answers to that doesn’t bring back the dead, from Oct. 7th the traumatized family-friends-witness and every Soldiers defending the country since. It won’t/doesn’t lessen the trauma to family-friends-country men due to Oct. 7th! Nor change what the hostages have/are facing! However, whoever was responsible for ignoring this warning has blood of their countrymen on the hands and need to be held responsible !

    Sadly 10/7 was an inside job that went off the rails. Someone wanted a nice size cross border infiltration and a successful operation to get it under control, for political reasons. From there it devolved, for whatever reasons got totally out of hand. disgraceful.
