Israel's Top Court Suspends October 7 Probe

• Activist Post

The Israeli High Court of Justice has ordered the government to halt its investigation into intelligence failings in the lead-up to Hamas' October 7 attack. The move comes after the court received classified briefings from security agencies, some of which have publicly opposed the probe.

In an interim ruling on Sunday, Justice Gila Canfy-Steinitz paused the investigation until the court can hear arguments from its opponents next month.

"In view of the complex security reality, the planned scope of the investigation, which will deal, among other things, with the combat support system and core operational issues, and the preparation required to respond to [the investigation] at the current time…I order the suspension of the investigation procedures in everything that relates to the IDF and [Shin Bet]," she wrote in her ruling, as quoted in Israeli media.
