'We are not involved', Iran insists after Hamas attack on Israel

Iran was not involved in the planning or execution of the Hamas movement’s attack on Israel, informed sources have told Amwaj.media. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a senior Arab security source in Beirut with close knowledge of the inner workings of Iran’s expeditionary Quds Force strongly rejected reports that the Palestinian blitz on Oct. 7 followed a series of secret meetings between Arab and Iranian officials in Lebanon.

In a statement to Amwaj.media, Iran’s Mission to the United Nations also strongly dismissed the notion of Quds Force involvement in decision making on the Hamas offensive.

“The decisions made by the Palestinian resistance are fiercely autonomous and unwaveringly aligned with the legitimate interests of the Palestinian people,” the Mission said, “We emphatically stand in unflinching support of Palestine; however, we are not involved in Palestine's response, as it is taken solely by Palestine itself.” It continued, “They [Israel] are attempting to justify their failure and attribute it to Iran's intelligence power and operational planning.”
