Hamas attack on Israel

On October 7, Hamas militants crossed into Israeli territory, capturing several settlements and mercilessly attacking civilians. In response, Israel launched a counteroffensive against the militants in the Gaza Strip. Remarkably, by evening on the first day of the conflict, IDF forces had managed to reclaim most of the territories previously held by the terrorists.

According to various reports, Israel has already sought military assistance from the United States, including requesting air defense systems.

Furthermore, Israel has faced attacks from Lebanon by Hezbollah militants and from Syria. In both cases, the IDF responded forcefully to protect its borders and citizens.
