Israel attacked by the Gaza Strip

On the morning of October 7, Hamas militants launched a massive rocket attack on the south and center of Israel. Thousands of rockets and projectiles were fired.

Hamas infiltrated at least seven populated areas in southern Israel. In response, the Israel Defense Forces announced the start of a "counterterrorism operation" called "Iron Swords" in the Gaza Strip. Dozens of fighter jets are targeting Hamas targets.

Ukraine has condemned the attack on Israel, and the Office of the President believes that the world is plunging into chaos due to Russia's actions.
