What is happening in Israel

This morning, militants from the Hamas terrorist group infiltrated Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip. The militants entered at least 13 Israeli communities and engaged in clashes with the Israeli army.

In addition, Hamas militants carried out a massive rocket attack on Israeli territory, including Tel Aviv. Despite the operation of the Iron Dome anti-missile system, some rockets still hit residential buildings and other civilian targets.

Following this, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that the country was in a "state of war," and the IDF announced a counterterrorism operation called Operation "Iron Swords." Israeli forces hope to conclude the operation by the end of Saturday.
