And now the article appeared in the columns of Politico, in which the members of the “observers” – “tatzpitaniyot” – the border guard unit that mainly employs women and monitors movements along the border, shared their criticisms with the media, according to which the leadership of the intelligence ignored the their warnings.
Hamas practiced in front of their noses
Politico also repeats the criticism of Netanyahu and the security services, according to which they complacently believed that Hamas was not a threat in Gaza, and even supported it through Qatar against the Palestinian Authority, which they thought was stronger, leading the West Bank.
Since we are talking about a women’s unit, the accusation of sexism cannot be left out of the bouquet this time, of course. Which may turn out to be another big mistake in the series of errors, according to the paper “the women say their mostly male commanders brushed off their warnings, insisting that Hamas was not planning war and
they were even ordered to stop emergency birding”.
tatzpitaniyot is the organization that monitors the border in a 15-30 kilometer strip, equipped with cameras and various high-tech, where even the smallest movement is monitored, for example, along the Gaza border, in Nahal Oz, near one of the kibbutz raided on October 7, daily multiple drone activity was reported in the weeks leading up to the attack. A soldier with the given name Ilana told Haaretz in this regard that they had observed Hamas fighters who were practicing an attack. “by building an exact model of the Israeli observation point, they practiced with drones how to shoot the soldier sitting in the machine gun nest”.
The terrorists’ drones sometimes buzzed a few hundred meters from the border fence.
The entire Israeli political spectrum was lulled into sleep
The terrorists attacked with unprecedented coordination and discipline, which also surprised the Israelis – we analyzed the attack later with a security policy expert.
