HAMAS attack on Israel

On October 7, militants from the HAMAS group invaded Israeli territory. During this large-scale attack, they carried out shootings and kidnappings of civilians, and the terrorists published videos of their atrocities on social media.

Subsequently, Israel launched a military operation against HAMAS called Operation Iron Swords. The IDF succeeded in repelling the militants from the country. The next stage may involve a ground operation in the Gaza Strip.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had conducted raids into the Gaza Strip before, during which terrorist groups were targeted. However, the IDF had not entered deep into Gaza's territory. As of October 21, the Chief of Staff announced that Israeli forces would enter the Gaza Strip.
