Israel declared war on Hamas after an unexpected attack from Gaza, resulting in over 700 Israeli deaths. The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) released the latest death toll, showing the country’s highest casualties since the Arab-Israeli War of 1973. “Israeli airstrikes on the 2.3 million-person obstructed and deprived enclosure claimed at least 413 lives in 800 targets,” according to Gaza officials. Many people believed that these attacks could be the start of a ground invasion. US President Joe Biden ordered additional assistance to Israel amid the attack, while other nations reported citizens killed, kidnapped, or missing. The Israeli army attempted to safeguard desert areas, free hostages, and evacuate areas near Gaza.
Israel Hamas Conflict Resulted in Over 1100 Deaths
After the parliament officially declared war by waking up Article 40 of the Basic Law, conflict roared as the Israeli army attempted to safeguard desert areas near the coastal enclave, free hostages, and evacuate every region near Gaza.
The most deadly assault on Israel
As the death toll from the conflict surpassed 1,100 on Sunday after the Palestinian militant group launched an unexpected attack from Gaza, Israel, still recovering from the fatal assault on its territory, formally declared war on Hamas.
The Jewish state were entering a “lengthy and challenging” war
A day after Hamas launched a flurry of thousands of rockets at Israel and dispatched a wave of fighters who shot and killed civilians and kidnapped at least 100 people, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the Jewish state were entering a “long and challenging” war.
Over 700 Israelis Died in this unexpected attack
The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) released the most recent death toll on Monday, showing that more than 700 Israelis perished since Hamas began its extensive attack. These are the country’s highest casualties since the Arab-Israeli War of 1973.
The beginning of a ground invasion
“Israeli airstrikes on the 2.3 million-person obstructed and deprived enclosure claimed at least 413 lives in 800 targets,” according to Gaza officials. Many people believed that these attacks could be the start of a ground invasion.
Joe Biden ordered “additional assistance to Israel”
Joe Biden, the President of the United States, ordered “additional assistance to Israel amid this unusual terrorist attack by Hamas.” A US National Security Council spokesperson stated that “several” Americans died in the unexpected attack but did not offer additional information.
This morning, I spoke with @IsraeliPM to express my full support for the people of Israel in the face of an unprecedented and appalling assault by Hamas terrorists.
We will remain in close contact over the coming days.
The U.S. will continue to stand with the people of Israel.
— President Biden (@POTUS) October 8, 2023
According to Lloyd Austin, the US Defence Secretary, Washington “will be quickly supplying the Israel Defence Forces with extra weapons and assets, including munitions.” According to Hamas, US assistance amounts to an “attack” against Palestinians.
Several other nations, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Brazil, France, Nepal, Ukraine, and Thailand, reported citizens killed, kidnapped, or missing in the battle.
In the south, where corpses of innocent people appeared discovered and spread on roads and in town centers, tens of thousands of Israeli troops went out to engage remaining Hamas fighters.
