Israel Ordered 'Hannibal Directive' in All But Name on October 7, Top Israeli Paper Reports

The "anti-Semitic conspiracy theory" that Israel killed many of its own people on October 7 under the "Hannibal Directive" is now being confirmed as fact by the Israeli press.

From The Cradle, "Israeli army ordered mass Hannibal Directive on 7 Oct: Media":
The Israeli military implemented the "Hannibal Directive" during Hamas’ attack on 7 October, killing some of its own civilians and soldiers to prevent Hamas from taking them as captives back to Gaza, according to an investigation by Israel's leading newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, which will be published in full on 12 January.

The Hebrew edition of the paper wrote on 11 January that "one of the revelations revealed in the investigation is that at noon on October 7, the IDF [Israeli army] ordered all of its combat units in practice to use the 'Hannibal Procedure' although without clearly mentioning this explicitly by name."

The order was to stop "at all costs any attempt by Hamas terrorists to return to Gaza, that is, despite the fear that some of them have abductees," the paper wrote.

The Times of Israel described how the Hannibal procedure, or directive, "allows soldiers to use potentially massive amounts of force to prevent a soldier from falling into the hands of the enemy. This includes the possibility of endangering the life of the soldier in question in order to prevent his capture."

A previous Haaretz investigation of the directive concluded that "from the point of view of the army, a dead soldier is better than a captive soldier who himself suffers and forces the state to release thousands of captives in order to obtain his release."

[...] [Yedioth Ahronoth] added it is not clear at this time how many of the Israeli abductees were killed due to the activation of the Hannibal directive:

"In the week after the attack, soldiers of elite units checked about 70 vehicles that were left in the area between the settlements and the Gaza Strip. These are vehicles that did not reach Gaza, because on the way they were shot by a combat helicopter, an anti-tank missile or a tank, and at least in some cases everyone in the vehicle was killed."
As I reported last month, it's entirely possible the majority of Israelis killed on October 7 were killed by Israeli forces themselves.

There was a lot more than 70 vehicles which were completely destroyed.

The controlled media in the US is refusing to cover this "Mass Hannibal" event and is instead pushing atrocity propaganda about "Hamas mass rapes" to justify Israel's ethnic cleansing campaign in Gaza.
