Fierce conflicts are currently raging between Israel and Palestine. More than 200 people are said to have died in Israel and Gaza from those clashes. The clashes erupted after the Palestinian Islamist militant group “Hamas” fired a series of rockets into Israeli territory through the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli security forces said that about 500 rockets were fired at Israel. To the surprise of Israeli security forces, Palestinian Hamas militants also say the attack was well-planned. The number of Israelis killed in those attacks is 40.
After the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Hamas militants had declared war on Israel and that Israel is currently in the middle of a war. Israeli security forces immediately responded to the Hamas attack and began airstrikes on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip. It is said that the number of dead in the Gaza Strip is 198.
Israel considers Islamist Hamas militants terrorists. The news services have also reported that the Hamas militants who carried out the attack have taken a group of Israelis hostage.
Also, it is reported that the Prime Minister’s Office has announced that the Israeli Cabinet has approved the official declaration of war with Israel. Accordingly, foreign media reports further state that significant military activities can be carried out there. (Al Jazeera)
