Senior members of Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah claimed that Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel that killed at least 700 people was given the green light by Iranian security officials.
Hamas plotted the air, land and sea invasions with help from officers of Iran‘s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Israel has since branded Iran a ‘terrorist state.’
The official go-ahead for the attack was allegedly given at a Monday meeting in Beirut.
Four other Iranian backed military groups were believed to be at the meeting, including members of Hamas and Hezbollah.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken claims he has ‘not yet seen evidence’ that Iran was involved in the attack.
