Oct.30, 2023 12:01 am ETTEL AVIV—Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a rare apology Sunday that inadvertently framed the political crisis that has engulfed him.A few hours earlier, facing mounting criticism for the Hamas attacks that killed 1,400 Israelis, he publicly blamed the security failures on Israel’s defense and intelligence services.He hadn’t been warned of Hamas’s intention to start a war, he wrote in a tweet on X, saying that defense and intelligence officials had “assessed that Hamas was deterred.” Copyright ©2023 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.All Rights Reserved.87990cbe856818d5eddac44c7b1cdeb8
