Israel Declares War as Hamas Launches Surprise Attack from Gaza

  • At Least 22 Israelis Killed and 545 injured in Unprecedented terrorist strike

Jerusalem, Agencies :  Israel has officially declared war on the Palestinian militant group Hamas following a devastating and unprecedented attack that saw Hamas gunmen infiltrate Israeli towns while launching a barrage of rockets from the Gaza Strip. The surprise attack has left at least 22 Israelis dead, according to the country’s ambulance service.

In a shocking turn of events, Hamas militants executed a meticulously coordinated attack, marking what they claimed to be their “first strike” in a statement released after the assault. The attack involved both armed gunmen infiltrating Israeli towns and the firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.

Israel swiftly responded to the attack by launching air strikes on the blockaded Gaza Strip. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed active fighting between its troops and militants in several Israeli towns and military bases located near the Gaza border.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the nation, declaring that Hamas had “declared war” on Israel and vowing to retaliate forcefully. He stated, “Our enemy will pay a price the type of which it has never known. We are in a war, and we will win it.”

The scale and audacity of this assault by Hamas have sent shockwaves throughout the region, raising concerns about the possibility of a full-scale conflict in the already volatile Middle East.

International leaders and organizations have called for an immediate ceasefire and a return to diplomatic negotiations to quell the escalating violence. The United Nations Security Council has scheduled an emergency session to address the situation, with world leaders urging restraint and a peaceful resolution to the crisis.

The situation remains fluid and highly volatile, with the region on high alert for further developments. The events of the past 24 hours have underscored the deep-rooted tensions in the region and the urgent need for a comprehensive and lasting peace process.

As the world watches closely, hopes for a de-escalation of the conflict and a path toward peace and stability in the Middle East hang in the balance.
