Indian military leadership studying Hamas attacks on Israel in detail: Sources

The Indian military leadership is studying in detail the attacks on Israeli targets by the terror group Hamas. The issue is also likely to come up for discussion during the Indian Army’s commanders conference planned in the third week of October, a senior official told India Today.

The Indian forces are also studying the possible gaps in intelligence gathering that could have led to the failure of the Israeli agencies in predicting the terror attack by Hamas.

ISRAEL-HAMAS WAR

Palestinian terrorist group Hamas launched a barrage of rocket attacks in southern Israel on Saturday, October 7, killing over 1,600 lives on both sides. At least 900 people have been killed and 2,600 injured in Israel. Meanwhile, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, 704 people have been killed, including 143 children and 105 women, and over 4,000 injured in Israeli airstrikes.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday also spoke to his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. After the call, PM Modi said that India “condemns terrorism in all its forms”.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), PM Modi thanked Netanyahu for his call and for providing him with an “update on the ongoing situation”. “People of India stand firmly with Israel in this difficult hour. India strongly and unequivocally condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” the post read.

US President Joe Biden also extended “rock solid and unwavering” support to Israel in response to “terrorist assaults” by Hamas. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will also visit Israel and meet the country’s political leadership to discuss the ongoing conflict.
