To prevent leaks, cabinet meeting canceled concerning rescue operation in Gaza

In preparation for a rare daylight mission, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the Shin Bet, and the IDF trained extensively. Despite the increased risks posed by operating in daylight due to the presence of more people in the streets, IDF spokesman Brigadier General Daniel Hagari believed that doing so would provide the ultimate surprise.

The decision to carry out the operation was made last Thursday after a meeting of the Defense Cabinet was canceled to prevent leaks. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the green light to execute the plan after meeting with senior officials in the defense establishment.

Intelligence gathered by both the US and UK played a crucial role in preparing for the operation. Drones collected aerial photographs and other information to identify potential locations of abductees, while Israeli intelligence was enhanced through investigations of captured Hamas terrorists. With limited physical space for action and communication abilities due to war destruction, locating more hostages became easier, thanks to support from advanced technologies provided by both countries.

However, technical malfunctions during an attempted evacuation of abductees were highlighted in an article published in The Wall Street Journal. Despite these challenges, officials from both Israel and America expressed uncertainty about future hostage rescue operations in Gaza due to Hamas’s changing tactics that make it more difficult for Israeli forces to reach captives.

Overall, despite various challenges faced during preparation and execution of this rare mission, it was ultimately successful thanks to extensive training and intelligence gathering efforts from both Israel and its allies.
