The WSJ with a bombshell report warns of widespread conflict in the Middle East by revealing that Iran planned and aided Hamas in planning the attack. In fact, the WSJ publishes details of the joint operation against Israel.
In many Arab capitals there is intense concern that a major regional conflict is now in the making as the WSJ (US news) directly targets Iran for the bloodshed in Israel!

WSJ: Iran planned the attack on Israel
Iran allegedly helped Hamas plan the surprise attack on Israel, senior Hamas and Hezbollah officials claim.
According to a Wall Street Journal report Iranian security officials approved Hamas’s plan for the terror strike against Israel at a meeting in Beirut, Lebanon last Monday.
Senior Hamas and Hezbollah officials say Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have been working with Hamas since August on plans for land, air and sea attacks.
This attack has so far claimed the lives of over 1,000 people, more than half of whom are Israelis.
“A direct Iranian role would bring Tehran’s long-standing conflict with Israel out of the shadows, raising the risk of a wider conflict in the Middle East.
“Senior Israeli security officials have vowed to hit Iran’s leadership if Tehran is found responsible for the killing of Israelis ,” the US newspaper reported.
Iranian Guard Leader Planned Operation – Hezbollah and Other Organizations Involved!
And it continues:
“The effort to bring Iran’s allies to war against Israel under a unified command was spearheaded by Ismail Qaani, the leader of the Quds Force.”
The Quds Force is one of five branches of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) specializing in unconventional warfare and military intelligence operations.
Qaani initiated coordination among several militias surrounding Israel in April during a meeting in Lebanon, the Wall Street Journal reported, where Hamas began working more closely with other groups such as Hezbollah for the first time.
At the time, Palestinian groups carried out a rare series of limited raids on Israel from Lebanon and Gaza under Iranian guidance, the Iranian official said.
“It was a great success ,” the official said.
According to the WSJ:
Representatives of those groups have met with Quds Force leaders at least twice a week in Lebanon since August to discuss last weekend’s attack on Israel and what happens next.
Qaani participated in some of these meetings along with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Islamic Jihad leader al-Nakhallah and Saleh al-Arouri, the military chief of Hamas.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian attended at least two of the meetings.
The Iranian official was clear:
“If Iran is attacked, it will respond with missile attacks on Israel from Lebanon, Yemen and Iran, and send Iranian fighters to Israel from Syria to attack cities in northern and eastern Israel.”
The operation was intended to strike Israel, while it seemed mired in internal political divisions. The aim was also to derail the acceleration of US-brokered talks to normalize relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel, which Iran saw as threatening , senior Hamas and Hezbollah officials said.
Hamas has publicly acknowledged receiving support from Iran. And on Sunday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi held talks with Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Ziyad al-Nakhalah and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.
The IRGC’s broader plan is to create a multi-pronged threat to strangle Israel from all sides—Hezbollah and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in the north, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas in Gaza and the West Bank .
However, Iran’s UN mission denied late Sunday that Tehran was involved in planning the attacks against Israel.
“The decisive measures taken by the Palestinians are a completely legitimate defense against seven decades of oppressive occupation and horrific crimes committed by the illegal Zionist regime,” the Iranian mission said in a statement.
“We emphasize our unwavering support for Palestine. However, we do not participate in Palestine’s response, as it is exclusively received by Palestine itself ,” Iran’s mission to the UN said.
“They are trying to justify their failure and attribute it to Iran’s espionage capability and operational planning ,” the Iranian mission said. “(Israel) has a hard time accepting that in the Intelligence community the narrative is that it was defeated by a Palestinian organization,” he concluded.
Israel: Iran is behind the attack
Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, said on Sunday that Iran was behind the attack.
“We know there were meetings in Syria and Lebanon with other leaders of the terrorist armies surrounding Israel, so obviously it’s easy to understand that they tried to coordinate.
Iran’s proxies in the region have tried to coordinate as much as possible with Iran,” Erdan said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“An attack of this magnitude could only have happened after months of planning and would not have happened without coordination with Iran,” said Lina Khatib, director of the SOAS Middle East Institute at the University of London. “Hamas, like Hezbollah in Lebanon, do not make decisions on their own to engage in war without prior express agreement from Iran.”
European Official Confirms – The USA is lowering the tone
A European official working as an adviser to the Syrian government confirmed the claims by the leaders of Hamas and Hezbollah, according to the Wall Street Journal.
But US officials say they have seen no evidence of Iranian involvement in the attacks that have so far killed more than 1,100 people on both sides.
“We have not yet seen evidence that Iran directed or was behind this particular attack, but there is certainly a long relationship,” Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told CNN on Sunday.
A US official speaking to the WSJ on condition of anonymity said: “We have no information at this time to confirm this report.”
A U.S. official told Fox News Digital Sunday night that “of course” Iran is in the picture, noting that Iran has supported Hamas and Hezbollah for years, but that U.S. officials currently have no information to confirm what the WSJ says.
