A top Iranian official has finally admitted that his country helped carry out Hamas’ Oct. 7 deadly attack on Israel.

Iran, the world’s leading state terror sponsor of terrorism, has been accused of helping Hamas carry out the attack on Israel. Many reports suggested that Iran helped plan and finance the Oct. 7 attack that saw the terror group murder, assault and kidnap hundreds of Israeli citizens.

Iranian Minister of Cultural Heritage and Retired IRGC General Ezzatollah Zarghami admitted that he personally visited the terror group’s underground tunnels inside Gaza to teach them how to use Iranian rockets. Zarghami made the admission in an interview last week in Iran.

“Fajr-3, which is a 240mm rocket, was one of our products,” he said during the interview. “Later, we made its warhead smaller and it had a range of 70 km. My first mission was to take this rocket — I say this with the utmost pride and with no fear of anyone — the leader has already said that we were helping (Hamas). We support the oppressed everyone — Shiite Hezbollah as well as Sunni Hamas. These are what (Khamenei) has declared in the past. I traveled to the region as the production manager of those rockets, and I supplied them to both Hezbollah and the Palestinians. For some time, I was inside the very same tunnels that they are fighting from. Six or seven years ago, I posted about this and got the nickname ‘yellow canary.’ In the tunnels, I provided training about the usage and specifications of the rockets. These training courses were highly successful.”

The top Iranian official revealed the bizarre way Hamas monitors oxygen in its network of tunnels using canaries in cages. Zarghami said he thought the birds were put there to sing to the terrorists but later found that they were put there to monitor oxygen levels.

“The commander replied that the birds are not meant for singing, they are meant to be (oxygen) sensors in case the airflow is disrupted,” he said. “If the airflow becomes weaker, the birds stop singing and drop dead. When the bird dies, we realize that there is a problem with airflow.”
