“A new report from the Israeli outlet Haaretz titled ‘IDF Ordered Hannibal Directive on October 7 to Prevent Hamas Taking Soldiers Captive’ confirms what independent outlets like The Grayzone and Electronic Intifada have been getting smeared as antisemitic conspiracy theorists for saying this entire time: that many of the Israeli deaths on October 7 were the result of an IDF policy of deliberately firing on their own people to prevent them from being taken hostage by Hamas. Citing ‘a very senior IDF source,’ Haaretz reports that Israeli troops responding to the Hamas attack were told ‘Not a single vehicle can return to Gaza,’ and that ‘it was entirely clear what that message meant, and what the fate of some of the kidnapped people would be.'” (07/08/24)
