Israel-Hamas War: News and Live Updates

On October 7, 2023, Palestinian militant factions, particularly Hamas, instigated an all-out attack on Israel from the Gaza Strip. The attack, the first of its magnitude since the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, led to the penetration of militants into the heavily fortified Gaza-Israel. defend and infiltrate Israeli settlements and military bases through the Gaza border crossings.

The Hamas-led offensive, named Operation Storm al-Aqsa, began under the cover of an early morning rocket attack on Israel. This was followed by bold and calculated incursions into Israeli-controlled territories using military vehicles, with numerous attacks on Israeli civilian settlements and military posts.

The severity of these clashes has led some observers to speculate that this could mark the beginning of a third Palestinian intifada. The last example of such open conflict was during the Yom Kippur War of 1973 when Israel officially declared war for the last time.

Faced with this unprecedented aggression, Israel planned a swift response, dubbed ‘Iron Swords’ by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). This was the first instance of such a declaration by a sovereign nation since the Yom Kippur War, which took place five decades earlier.

This all-out attack and subsequent Israeli retaliation is considered one of the most intense clashes between Palestinian militants and Israeli forces in recent times. As the situation unfolds, the world is watching, anxiously waiting to see what effect this conflict might have on the already fragile Middle East.
