American reaction to the attacks
The United States has obtained data indicating that the Iranian leadership did not anticipate the violent actions of the Hamas terrorist group against Israel, as reported by the New York Times, citing official sources.
The White House administration initially refrained from commenting on the matter. However, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said there is no evidence directly linking Iran to the attack.
“We are in constant conversations with Israeli authorities on this matter. “We are evaluating our intelligence reports to obtain more details on the issue,” Sullivan said.
Aftermath of Hamas surprise assault
Hamas, an organization backed by Iran, carried out an unexpected attack against Israel last Saturday, killing more than 1,200 Israelis and kidnapping more than 100 people.
After this event, the Israeli army confirmed that casualties reached 1,200 people, and more than 2,700 were injured after Hamas militants managed to breach the border barrier surrounding Gaza.
In response, Israel began a series of airstrikes on Gaza. These counterattacks have so far left 1,055 dead and 5,184 injured. According to UN data, nine of the victims were collaborators of the Palestinian Refugee Agency.
