Israel's High Court has suspended the State Comptroller's review of IDF and Shin Bet failures that could make the October 7 massacre possible.

"In light of the complex security situation, the planned scope of the review, which will cover, among other things, the support for combat operations and key operational issues, as well as the necessary preparations to provide responses at this time, and while giving significant weight to the confidential opinions of security officials, which were submitted for my review, I order the suspension of review procedures concerning the IDF and the Shin Bet," Judge Gila Canfy-Steinitz said.

Previously, Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara sent an expert opinion to Israel's High Court, expressing doubts regarding State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman's authority to review the army's actions and security services during the war. In her letter to the High Court, Baharav-Miara indicated that the appropriate instrument for such a review should be a state investigative commission and that, at this moment, the State Comptroller's review could hinder the IDF and Shin Bet from fulfilling their assigned tasks.
