North Korea's bloody fingerprints are over October 7

November 24, 2023  •  Jerusalem Post

In the seven weeks since Hamas invaded Israel and massacred over 1,200 people, growing international attention has been directed toward the terrorist organization's primary backers and paymasters, chief among them Iran and Qatar.

The two autocratic regimes, which have provided Hamas with various forms of support over the course of many years, both bear responsibility for the savagery that was inflicted by their Gaza-based client.
