Through impactful strikes, Hamas has inflicted significant damage on the Zionist army and revealed the surveillance plans of this regime in Gaza. The intelligence attempts by the United States and the United Kingdom to locate the hideouts of prisoners and the command centers of resistance leaders with the aim of gaining advantages in Gaza have proven to be unsuccessful preemptive actions. This failure is unlikely to spare the Zionists from the impending conflict.
The Zionist regimeís intelligence failure during Operation Al-Aqsa Storm on October 7th, along with the overall inability of its intelligence, security, and military entities to locate the detention sites of Zionist captives and the hiding places of Hamas leaders, even after three months of military aggression in Gaza, has raised numerous questions and uncertainties regarding Mossadís capabilities in identifying threats against this regime. According to recent reports, the warmongering Zionist cabinet, facing intense pressure from captive families, is seeking assistance from its Western allies to facilitate the release of prisoners.
After delivering military assistance and vetoing anti-Zionist resolutions in the Security Council, the United States is currently seeking information on the top leaders of Hamas and the locations of Zionist captives in Gaza with the intention of sharing it with the Israelis.
Khaleej Times reported on the specifics of this intelligence operation, noting, "It is still uncertain how crucial this information is for Israel, despite no arrests or killings of the top Hamas leaders." This task force, led by Jake Sullivan, the National Security Advisor of the United States, was established immediately after the Operation Al-Aqsa Storm and promptly deployed with instructions to intelligence agencies and the Department of Defense.
What is the objective of the Washington intelligence initiative?
According to Khaleej Online, the United States is increasing drone flights over Gaza and intensifying efforts to monitor communications among Hamas officials to expand its intelligence gathering on the movements of Hamas.
The U.S. intelligence system has reportedly raised the priority of collecting information on Hamas to a second-tier level. The first tier is dedicated to international adversaries like China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran, which could pose a direct threat to the United States. The New York Times reported on January 12 that the United States has not shared information about lower or mid-level members of Hamas with Tel Aviv. Some U.S. officials believe that targeting lower-level members of Hamas may be ineffective as they are easily replaceable. Consequently, William Burns, the CIA Director, is collaborating with David Barnea, the Director of Mossad, for the release of captives still held by Hamas in Gaza.
The New York Times reported that U.S. officials believe Yahya Sinwar, the leader of Hamas in Gaza, is concealed in the deep sections of the tunnel network beneath the city of Khan Yunis in the southern strip. Americans claim he is surrounded by Zionist captives used as human shields, making military operations for his capture or elimination relatively challenging due to the significant risks involved for the Zionist captives.
U.S. intelligence collaboration extends beyond uncovering Hamas tunnels or command centers. Over the past four months, Washington has shared substantial information about non-military facilities with the occupying forces. Two months ago, a White House official mentioned providing details about health centers and hospitals to the Zionist regime to prevent attacks, despite subsequent bombings. In the early stages of the Gaza war, some U.S. media reported that numerous intelligence personnel had assisted the Zionist army in dealing with resistance groups in the occupied territories.
Simultaneously, there are reports of British surveillance aircraft flying over Gaza, suggesting Londonís assistance to the occupiers. The English newspaper " Declassified UK " reported that the British Royal Air Force conducted 50 surveillance flights over Gaza since early December to aid Israel.
British surveillance aircraft depart from the airbase known as "Akrotiri" in Southern Cyprus and travel to Gaza. A daily flight is undertaken, and the collected information is transferred to Tel Aviv. On December 3rd, the British Ministry of Defense issued a statement, declaring that the surveillance flights over Gaza are carried out "to supply Israel with information to aid the captive rescue process in Gaza."
Consequences of Washingtonís Intelligence Collaboration with Tel Aviv
The U.S. and the U.K.ís efforts to gather information about captives and Hamas commanders suggest that, despite having advanced espionage and intelligence technologies, the Zionist regime has encountered significant challenges in information warfare against resistance groups.
According to Mohamed al-Samadi, a military expert interviewed by Khaleej Times, the heightened interest of the United States in Hamas post Al-Aqsa Storm operation stems from the acknowledgment of Israeli intelligence agenciesí failure in predicting the October 7 operations. This failure negatively impacted the credibility of the Israeli regimeís deterrence theory in the region.
Al-Samadi further asserts that the pursuit of Hamas leaders by the United States signifies the realization that these leaders are incorruptible, committed to their ideals, people, and homeland, and are not susceptible to being bought or influenced easily. This fact demonstrates the high alert status of the Palestinian people, while the Zionist regimes negligence discourages and disrupts them.
Reflecting on the intelligence failure of the Zionist regime in achieving war objectives, al-Samadi points out various reasons, including the covert nature of Hamas activities, its communication methods with resistance movements, the extensive tunnel network, training facilities, weapons workshops, and the significant quantities of stored materials. Additionally, Hamasí avoidance of using phones and computers connected to internet communication networks contributes to the challenges faced by Israeli intelligence.
This military expert also highlights the deceptive tactics employed by Hamas to blind computers and programmers of the enemy, impacting the real objectives and capabilities of resistance groups through artificial intelligence. This has posed a challenge to the Zionist regime, which overly relies on this technology and has deviated from the principles of intelligence studies and analytical methods. The military expert believes that Israelís intelligence failure in pinpointing the locations of Hamas members and its struggles against smaller groups have become evident, as there are no clear contact lines, engagements, or defined fronts for battle.
Does Washington have the ability to assist Tel Aviv?
The question of whether the intelligence collaboration between the United States and the United Kingdom can untangle Tel Avivís issues remains uncertain. The irony of the situation lies in the fact that, before October 7th, the United States generally relied on the intelligence services of the Zionist regime for collecting information about Hamas. However, Al-Aqsa Storm Operation revealed significant weaknesses in the intelligence apparatus of this regime regarding Hamas to the extent that American officials were prompted to analyze the information that the Zionist regime had shared with the United States.
On the other hand, observers express doubts about the success of Americaís efforts to provide information to the Israeli occupiers. According to these observers, in the case of the assassination of Saleh al-Arouri, the political deputy of Hamas in Lebanon, by the Zionist army, the United States did not provide any information about his whereabouts to Tel Aviv. It is said that the entire operation was carried out by the occupying army without American input.
The Mossad intelligence organization and other Zionist security agencies, such as the Shabak, consistently assert their expertise in intelligence operations, claiming the ability to detect and neutralize threats against the occupied territories before they are executed. However, it can be argued that Washingtonís intelligence maneuvers might not achieve much success, as everything available to the Zionists in the realms of intelligence and military is supplied by the United States. In an October report, "Le Monde" newspaper stated, "Despite being equipped with the latest and most effective American information technologies, Israel failed to uncover Hamas operations, and Hamas, using basic but effective communication tools, managed to thwart the latest tracking techniques." Therefore, America is not introducing any new technology to discover the hiding places of captives and the headquarters of Hamas leaders but is rather engaging in an effortless never-ending cycle of confusion.
The Resistance One Step Ahead of Tel Avivís Advanced Techniques
Information disclosed by Palestinian resistance leaders regarding the espionage methods employed by the Zionist regime in Gaza suggests that Tel Aviv is employing advanced technologies to target the resistance forces. A recent report from a security source within the Palestinian resistance highlighted the monitoring of novel communication technology utilized by Shabak mercenaries in Gaza during the Al-Aqsa storm.
According to the security source, Shabak has acknowledged the setbacks faced from the resistance and is now in search of new technology to streamline communication with their mercenaries. The fresh approach safeguards the mercenary during device usage, ensuring that if the device is seized by the resistance, no traces or evidence of prior communication with the Shabak officer are recorded.
The mentioned source stated, "The new technique involves a chip similar to a mobile phone chip, which is used once in the mobile device and is erased after being programmed into the device. This system becomes active, ready to receive officer communications, without having a chip inside. This new technique is so sophisticated that if the mobile phone falls into the hands of someone other than the spy, it leaves no trace."
The exposure of Zionist regimeís espionage methods in Gaza is considered a significant victory for Palestinian resistance, indicating that Hamas has gradually moved with advanced techniques to counter occupiers and has the capability to neutralize them. Therefore, after 108 days of the Gaza war, no information has been obtained from Hamas commanders regarding the tunnel network or even the hiding places of Zionist captives. Only a few tunnels have been discovered in the northern Gaza Strip, which the Al-Qassam Brigades had evacuated before the arrival of enemy forces. These tunnels, compared to the 500 to 700 kilometers of the tunnel network beneath Gaza, represent a negligible figure and demonstrate the failure of the Zionist regimeís intelligence services.
Despite holding extensive intelligence dominance over Gaza for more than seven decades, the Zionists have been unable to locate the command centers of Hamas leaders. They are currently seeking support from the United States and the United Kingdom in an attempt to salvage their reputation from this intelligence and military disgrace. Despite the Zionist military conducting widespread attacks by land, air, and sea in Gaza, and deploying 300,000 troops to the region, they have failed to achieve their stated objectives. This intelligence failure underscores Hamasís effective management of the war, with the group responding adeptly to the security and intelligence actions of the enemy.
Former leaders of the United States initially opposed the Zionist armyís assassination of resistance commanders, viewing it as a factor exacerbating tensions between Palestinian groups and Tel Aviv. However, it appears they have now changed their stance, as they do not wish for Israel to emerge empty-handed from the Gaza conflict, which has incurred numerous political and military costs. In recent weeks, Zionist media and authorities have openly admitted their inability to destroy Hamas. Instead, this resilient movement has successfully withstood the Zionist armed forces, inflicting significant casualties among their troops.
The defiance of reserve forces, disobedience to military orders, and the mandatory leaves of numerous military personnel indicate a deteriorating situation within the occupying Zionist army, making it challenging for them to sustain ongoing operations. Consequently, the United States, lacking confidence in Israelís ability to successfully eliminate Hamas, is making efforts to assist the Zionist regime in Gaza through intelligence support. If feasible, they aim to apprehend or eliminate certain high-ranking Hamas commanders, presenting it as a noteworthy achievement for the public in the occupied territories. This approach is driven by the realization that a prolonged war, with the fear of its escalation in the region, would entail severe consequences for Washington and the warmongering Netanyahu government.
According to a Sunday report from The Wall Street Journal, U.S. intelligence estimations suggest that Hamas possesses the capability to engage in combat against the Zionist army for several months. The Zionist regimeís appeal for intelligence assistance from the United States to locate the headquarters of Hamas commanders and the whereabouts of captives underscores the regimeís significant desperation and frustration in achieving its stated objectives. However, seeking support from Western allies is unlikely to resolve the challenges faced by the hawkish Netanyahu government. Much like its unsuccessful attempt to form a naval coalition against Yemeni forces and the inability to secure Zionist ships, the United States will not succeed in its espionage methods against Gazaís resistance groups.
