Former Pentagon Advisor, Douglas MacGregor, stated that an American Special Force, accompanied by an Israeli Special Force, were tragically decimated when they attempted to investigate the location of the Israeli hostages in Gaza and were subsequently fired upon.
During an interview on an American TV channel, MacGregor stated that as it has been observed over the last 24 hours, American and Israeli special operations forces entered the Gaza Strip to carry out reconnaissance and assess potential ways for freeing the hostages, but they were attacked and suffered severe casualties.
He shared his belief that what happened was a natural progression and he did not see it as a victory for Israel in any way. He also expressed his concern regarding the potential risks it presented for the Americans.
MacGregor stated that 2,000 Marines and 2,000 Special Forces soldiers promptly deployed to the region, but he believes this quantity will not have a significant effect. MacGregor further argues that the United States lacks a genuine military force.
