The terrorists of Hamas who invaded Israel on Oct. 7, killing an estimated 1,400 and kidnapping another 200, committed atrocities in their attack, including beheading babies, inflicting torture, burning families alive as documented by victims' bodies fused together in death, and more.
WND previously reported the terrorists drugged themselves with a stimulus in order to inflict the horrors.
Now a report from the Washington Examiner reveals the attackers were instructed, even ordered, to commit such atrocities:
The Israel Defense Forces have confirmed that a note reportedly found on the body of a dead terrorist, included instructions about the beheading of victims.
Israel Defense Forces spokesman Brig. Gen. Daniel Hagari read, and explained, the notes during an interview.
The IDF said the note read: "Know that this enemy of yours is a disease that has no cure, other than beheading and extracting the hearts and livers!"
Hagari said Israel's response to the terror was, "The Oct. 7 massacre is something that I haven’t seen through my life. This is a war. We have to fight. There is only one goal: Defeat Hamas. Kill the leaders of terror and bring our people home."
The note was revealed shortly after Israel showed members of the press 43 minutes of footage from various Hamas terror attacks revealing the level of atrocities inflicted on innocent Israelis.
The Examiner said, "The videos shown to roughly 200 reporters included one of a woman trying to establish whether a partially burned woman's corpse whose dress was pulled up to her waist and without underpants was that of a relative, among other distressing scenes, according to the Times of Israel."
Workers in Israel who provide both rescue and recovery services from terror attacks confirmed workers had seen victims "shot in the back, civilians burned alive, children with their hands tied behind their backs, and, in one case, an unborn baby who had been ripped from its mother's stomach."
It was a report in the Jerusalem Post earlier that charged that a drug has been found that the Hamas terrorists took "to help them slaughter Israelis."
"Hamas terrorists who carried out a surprise attack on October 7 were found to be under the influence of Captagon, a synthetic amphetamine-type stimulant that has been clandestinely produced in southern Europe and trafficked through Turkey to the consumer markets on the Arabian Peninsula, as reported by Nir Dvori of Channel 12," the publication explained.
The pills were found in the pockets of the terrorists who died.
It described the stimulant as the "cocaine for the poor," and the report charges it allowed Hamas members "to commit heinous acts with a sense of calmness and indifference."
Further, the report said the drug kept the terrorists "highly alert" for lengthy time periods and suppressed their appetite.
It previously was found to have been in the systems of ISIS terrorists "to suppress fear" when they carried out their operations, the report said.
It reported, "Captagon belongs to the amphetamine family and was initially developed to address attention disorders, narcolepsy, and depression. Despite its highly addictive nature and potential for inducing psychotic reactions, it continues to enjoy popularity in the Middle East due to its affordability and ease of manufacturing."
