HAMAS attack on Israel

Yesterday morning, militants from the terrorist group HAMAS infiltrated Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip and engaged in combat with Israeli forces. HAMAS managed to capture several populated areas.

By evening, Israeli military forces had regained control of the majority of the territory and conducted strikes on military targets and HAMAS headquarters in response.

Israel declared a "state of war" and initiated the counterterrorism operation "Operation Iron Swords" in response to the HAMAS attack.
