American military was stunned by a sudden attack on Hamas Intel chiefs. The attack was carried out by Israel.
“The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) targeted senior intelligence and counter-intelligence officers from the Palestinian Hamas terrorist group on Tuesday, adding in a post on Twitter: ‘Looks like our intel was better,” according to a Breitbart report.
Our fighter jets, with the ISA, neutralized key figures of Hamas' intelligence: Hassan Kaogi, head of the Hamas military intelligence security department & his deputy Wail Issa, head of the military intelligence counterespionage department.
Looks like our intel was better.
