According to the report, about ten days before the surprise attack on Israel by the Hamas terrorist organization, the Egyptian Minister of Intelligence, General Abbas Kamel, called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and warned him of "something unusual, a terrible operation" that was about to occur from the Gaza direction.
