Events in Israel
On the morning of Saturday, October 7, 2023, the Palestinian armed groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad immediately launched a massive attack on the State of Israel in several places from the air and on the ground. The head of the armed wing of Hamas, Muhammad al-Deifa, said that his fighters launched the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation. According to him, these actions are designed to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Palestinians fired 2,000-3,000 rockets into Israel and simultaneously captured 7 communities in the south.
In response, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced the mobilization of reservists and the start of the counter-terrorist operation “Iron Swords”. For the first time in 50 years, a government decision introduced martial law in the country.
Since the morning, the TSA actively used aviation to strike Palestinian command posts. The clean-up of communities occupied by Hamas has also begun.
