Israeli officials had an intimate understanding of Hamas' brutal October 7 terrorist attack over a year before it happened, but brushed off the battle plan as too aspirational for the group to pull off, a bombshell report has claimed. 

In a 40-page document obtained by The New York Times, Hamas laid out a detailed plan to carry out its assault on Israel that ultimately led to the deaths of approximately 1,200 people in a day. 

The blueprint reportedly did not set a date for the attack, but offered an exhaustive look at the terrorist group's strategy, including a targeting fortifications around the Gaza Strip while storming key military bases and division headquarters. 

According to the outlet, the plans within the document were followed by Hamas with chilling precision in the attacks last month, raising questions as to why Israel failed to take steps to prevent it. 

It is also claimed that officials admitted they could have stopped, or at least blunted, the October 7 attacks had they taken a number of urgent warnings from analysts seriously.

The report comes amid mounting scrutiny on Israel's intelligence systems and its failure to understand the military capabilities of Hamas. It is not known if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (pictured October 24) saw the document, which was widely circulated a year before the attacks

For over a year, Israeli officials reportedly understood that Hamas had designs on beginning an attack over the border with a barrage of rockets in a surprise onslaught.  

The use of drones to knock out security cameras and automated machine guns positioned along the border were also part of Hamas' longstanding plan. 

In a sign of the shocking accuracy Hamas followed to its master plan, the document ordered gunmen to fly into Israel on paragliders, with the unorthodox strategy used to horrific affect at the fateful Supernova music festival where at least 364 people were killed. 

Israeli intelligence officials have come under scrutiny in the weeks after the October 7 attacks, amid questions over a lack of understanding of the impending attack before it took place. 

But Hamas appeared to have a far better grasp on Israel's apparatus than previously known, as the document included extensive, sensitive details on the location and size of Israel's military forces and communication hubs. 

This has also raised questions as to how Hamas was able to obtain this information, and the possibility of leaks within Israeli intelligence. 

Despite the chilling details found in the document, which was circulated widely within Israeli military and intelligence circles, experts reportedly determined that the attack was far too ambitious for Hamas to achieve.

It is not known if Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw the document.
