The Israeli Foreign Ministry's weapons of mass destruction non-proliferation department sent a classified cable to dozens of its embassies on Thursday with the headline, “Hamas intention of using chemical weapons.”
The Israelis found a USB on one of Hamas terrorists’ bodies following the Oct. 7 attack in Israel.
It included specific instructions to produce a “cyanide dispersion device.” The Israel government instructed their diplomats to inform their host countries.
"This finding points to an intention by Hamas to use chemical weapons as part of its terror attack against civilians," the message stated as Axios reported on Saturday..
The ministry also told their diplomats to inform their counterparts that Hamas wants "to conduct attacks in a similar way that ISIS tried to do."
