In a move aimed at countering what they termed a “Holocaust denial-like phenomenon” Israel released what they described as “gruesome” and previously unreleased bodycam footage of Hamas’ Oct. 7 terrorist attack.

According to Fox News, Israeli government spokesman Eylon Levy explained that the Israel Defense Forces had collected footage from bodycams worn by the Hamas militants involved in the attack. The footage was made public to provide evidence and a record against those who doubt the extent of the atrocities committed by Hamas during the attack.

Levy expressed his dismay at the necessity of releasing this footage, stating that some were casting doubt on the magnitude of the violence perpetrated by Hamas against the Israeli people, even though Hamas had recorded these events to glorify their actions. Consequently, the Government Press Office screened the raw and unedited footage for foreign media, showing what Levy described as “the horrific truth.”

The screening took place in Israel, and some of the footage reportedly showed Israelis being ambushed in their cars, the execution of a girl discovered hiding under a desk by Hamas terrorists, and the tragic death of a father and his two children after a Hamas fighter threw a grenade into their bomb shelter.

The release of this footage comes in the midst of the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, now in its third week. The war has resulted in a significant loss of life, with at least 5,700 people reported killed on both sides, including Israeli civilians, soldiers, and Americans.

The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry claims that at least 4,385 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza and the West Bank, with thousands more wounded.

Additionally, concerns arise over the well-being of hostages, with at least 10 Americans among the 222 people held captive by Hamas.

Report: North Korean ballistic missile fired by Russia into Ukraine contained components sourced from U.S.

A new report from Conflict Armament Research (CAR), a U.K.-based investigative organization, determined that a North Korean ballistic missile which was fired by Russia into Ukraine contained “numerous” electronic components sourced from the U.S. and Europe.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported on the findings, noting approximately 75% of the 290 components analyzed in the missile originated from U.S.-based companies, and an additional 16% of components came from European firms, according to the CAR report.

The electronic components came from 26 countries in total and were largely utilized in the missile’s navigation system, according to the report. It isn’t clear how the components ended up in North Korea’s possession, as the country is strictly sanctioned by a bulk of the international community, but it’s possible other foreign companies, acting as middlemen, bought the components and then diverted them to the communist country.

However, the fact that North Korea was able to acquire so many American electronic component parts suggests “that the country has developed a robust acquisition network capable of circumventing, without detection, sanction regimes that have been in place for nearly two decades,” according to the report.

CAR documents “weapons at the point of use and track their sources back through the chains of supply.”North Korea gathered the components, assembled the missile and shipped it to Russia, all within a relatively short time period, according to the report. The missile was recovered by CAR on Jan. 2, and the investigators determined it could not have been manufactured before March 2023.

The U.S. government and intelligence agencies are working to stop sensitive American intellectual property from ending up in the hands of several foreign adversaries. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin have strengthened their relationship since Russia first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.

“Due in part to our export and sanction controls, Russia has become increasingly isolated on the world stage, and they’ve been forced to look to like-minded states for military equipment,” White House National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing in January. “One of those states is North Korea.”
