IDF helicopter gunship targeting Hamas fighters during Nova festival massacre mistakenly fires on revelers, Haaretz says


  • The Israeli army mistakenly struck participants at the Nova festival while targeting Hamas militants, reports Haaretz.

  • 364 people were killed at the psychedelic trance music festival near the Gaza border.

  • A police investigation reportedly indicated that Hamas was unaware of the festival in advance.

A police investigation into the Oct. 7 Nova music festival massacre says the IDF mistakenly shot some festival attendees while shooting at Hamas terrorists.

The alleged debacle was reported by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, citing a police source.

The source told Haaretz that the police investigation reveals that an IDF helicopter gunship fired on terrorists after arriving at the scene. While targeting the perpetrators, the helicopter also allegedly hit festival-goers.

Business Insider contacted Josh Breiner, the Haaretz reporter who broke this story, for comment.

Three hundred and sixty-four people were killed during the festival, a third of the victims of the coordinated terrorist attacks by Hamas militants against Israel on October 7, according to the Times of Israel.

The Israeli security assessment is that Hamas had no advance knowledge of the Nova music festival, located next to Kibbutz Re’im, and spontaneously targeted it after infiltrating the Gaza border , reports Haaretz.

The festival was initially scheduled to end Friday evening and only continued until late Saturday, he reported.

About 3,500 people attended the psychedelic trance festival three miles from the Gaza border, according to the New York Times.

In addition to these deaths, dozens of festival participants were kidnapped and taken to Gaza. A video of Noa Argamani, 25, being hoisted onto a motorbike by activists while she called her boyfriend has gone viral on social media.
