Hamas Linked to North Korea

(TheIndependentStar.com) – Alarming evidence has emerged that the forces of evil are coming together against Western nations as reports indicate that the Palestinian Islamist terrorist group Hamas’s recent invasion of US ally Israel used weapons supplied to it by the communist monarch of North Korea.

North Korea is suspected of supplying Hamas with weapons in the lead-up to the group’s attacks on Israel on October 7, South Korean media report.

These attacks resulted in the death of more than 1,400 Israelis and foreigners, including 27 Americans, and the kidnapping of some 200 civilians.

Several weapons that Hamas used during this conflict seem to have originated from North Korea, The Daily Caller reports, quoting VOA’s Korean Service and Yonhap News Agency.

The reports also suggest that North Korea might be providing tactical expertise to Hamas.

“Hamas is believed to be directly or indirectly linked to North Korea in various areas, such as the weapons trade, tactical guidance and training,” a top South Korean military official told Yonhap.

“There is a possibility that North Korea could use Hamas’ attack methods for a surprise invasion of South Korea,” the official added.

Akiva Tor, an Israeli diplomat in South Korea, corroborated these suspicions. He told VOA that North Korea had sent weapons to Hamas before the October 7 attacks.

Tor confirmed that Iran was backing Hamas but didn’t specify the extent of Iran’s involvement.

“In Gaza, as it is the one which attacks us, they use North Korean weapons. It could be that these North Korean weapons have been in Iran for quite a long time,” the Israeli diplomat said.

A photograph taken by the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) shows weaponry that Hamas had in its possession, which looks similar to the F7 high-explosive rocket, a product of North Korea.

An official familiar with these rockets mentioned they seemed to have a North Korean origin.

“It appears likely that a considerable number of the weapons that Hamas has [been using came] from the North Koreans,” Bruce Bechtol, formerly of the US Defense Intelligence Agency, told VOA.

Furthermore, artillery shells near Israel’s border showed markings similar to those used by the North Korean military.

In terms of tactics, Hamas seemed to use strategies reminiscent of North Korea, such as using paragliders shown in a military demonstration overseen by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in 2016.
