Retired Common Yoav Har-Even submitted his report back to the IDF Chief of Employees on April 5, 2024.

Let’s begin with essentially the most stirring report, posted by The Persian Jewess, an “Iranian Jewish refugee, peaceable activist, staunch warrior in opposition to antisemitism and Jew hate.” She tweeted early Sunday morning:

“BREAKING IDF has revealed that Hamas PURPOSELY drew hearth to the WCK truck.​

“At round 10 pm, the IDF observed suspicious exercise because the WCK car was joined by a convoy of a number of different Hamas autos.​

“Hamas terrorists then climbed ONTO and INTO the WCK truck and FIRED a number of occasions indiscriminately into the air to make sure the IDF would see them.​

“The convoy then cut up up and entered a hanger, the place it turned tough to differentiate between the Hamas autos and the WCK car.​

“IDF tried to name each the WCK staff and WCK HQ on TWO separate events to substantiate whether or not they had been with the Hamas convoy however their calls remained unanswered.​

“When the autos left the hangar OVER AN HOUR LATER the IDF drone unit misidentified the WCK car for a car from the Hamas convoy and mistakenly struck.​

“The IDF has supplied their full findings to each WCK and Jose Andres, and at the moment are requiring new stickers for help autos which might be seen by way of drones even at the hours of darkness.”​

The occasion befell on April 1. On April 5, Maj. Gen.(ret.) Yoav Har-Even, presently President and CEO of Rafael Superior Protection Techniques who, till his discharge from the IDF, served as head of the navy’s Operations Directorate, offered IDF Chief of Employees Herzi Halevi with a report on his investigation of the dying of seven World Central Kitchen staff.

Shortly thereafter, Halevi dismissed two senior commanders within the combating formation within the Gaza Strip and reprimanded different senior commanders, together with the Commander of the Southern Command, Common Yaron Finkelman, as Information 1 reported final Friday.

In keeping with the IDF Spokesman, Har-Even’s report confirmed that IDF forces recognized one gunman on the roof of one of many help vehicles, who was later joined by one other gunman. After the autos left the warehouse the place the help had been unloaded, one of many commanders mistakenly assessed that the armed males had been Hamas terrorists. The forces didn’t determine the autos in query as being related to the WCK group.

“Following a misidentification, the forces attacked the three WCK autos, primarily based on the misunderstanding that there have been Hamas operatives in them, thus ensuing within the dying of seven harmless humanitarian help operatives,” the IDF Spokesman mentioned, including that “The assault on the three autos was carried out in critical violation of the related orders and directions.”

AFP reported final Friday that the WCK staff unloaded 300 tons of meals help from Cyprus at a pier close to Deir al-Balah on the Gaza coast. That a part of the operation was secured by IDF troopers and didn’t require armed personnel to protect the vehicles.

A convoy comprising eight vehicles proceeded southward alongside the coastal highway for roughly 20 minutes. At 10:28 PM, close to the WCK Welcome Heart, it was joined by 4 pickup vehicles transporting help staff. It was at that time, in line with Har Even’s report, that an armed man climbed the roof of one of many autos and “began firing his weapon,” which, Har-Even wrote, led the IDF to suspect the “convoy had been hijacked by Hamas.”

In keeping with AFP, the IDF offered journalists with drone footage depicting what gave the impression to be a person firing an automated rifle from atop a truck. Continuing alongside its designated route, the convoy finally halted on the warehouse recognized as “Hangar A,” the place the navy asserted that the assailant had disembarked.

The IDF tried to contact the WCK for an evidence of what appeared like a Hamas theft of the humanitarian help. Nonetheless, the safety officer of the charity in Europe mentioned he was unable to determine contact with the staff on the bottom – making the suspicion of a Hamas theft even stronger.

Upon the arrival of the help vehicles and pickups at WCK’s Hangar A, the Air Pressure drone detected “15 to twenty people exterior the hangar, and a minimum of two to 4 of them had been recognized as carrying weapons,” Har-Even reported.

In keeping with Har-Even, “Between 10:47 and 10:55 PM, one of many Israeli commanding officers (viewing the pictures again at base) concluded they had been Hamas operatives.” However after sharing their conclusion with IDF Command, “they had been ordered to not strike the armed people in order to not danger the humanitarian convoy,” though “two to 4 gunmen had been recognized as getting out and going into the hangar.”

In keeping with Har-Even, the IDF guidelines of engagement forbid hanging suspects that near a warehouse filled with humanitarian help.

Har-Even talked about that because the three pickups retraced their route towards the coast, the brigade-level commanders who had been following the drone’s video in real-time had been assured that they had noticed an armed particular person boarding one of many pickups, concluding that he was a Hamas terrorist.

Har-Even reported that the drone staff was satisfied “the humanitarian mission had ended they usually had been monitoring a minimum of one Hamas gunman.”

Between 11:09 and 11:13 PM, the drone moved from one car to the subsequent, killing seven help staff in three autos, “which was in opposition to customary working procedures,” in line with Har-Even.

Did, because the Persian Jewess claims, “Hamas terrorists then climbed ONTO and INTO the WCK truck and FIRED a number of occasions indiscriminately into the air to make sure the IDF would see them?” Nicely, that is the half neither Har-Even nor the IDF Spokesman clarify. The WCK ought to present an evidence – except it’s concealing the half about Hamas making an attempt to attract IDF hearth to its pickups, to begin the worst worldwide incident Israel has encountered since sinking the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967.
