    Palestinian gunmen infiltrate Israel from Gaza Strip after rocket attack

    2023 Israel–Hamas war _131356184_562ca561-5a3a-4dac-b22f-073e3af46e93.jpg

    By David Gritten
    BBC News
    Israel says it is "at war" after dozens of gunmen from the Palestinian militant group Hamas infiltrated from Gaza in a unprecedented attack.

    The militants crossed the perimeter fence just after dawn, as barrages of rockets were launched from Gaza.

    At least one Israeli has been killed by the gunmen, while rocket fire has killed one person and wounded hundreds.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed that Hamas will "pay a price it has never known".

    The Israeli military has said that dozens of fighter jets are carrying out air strikes on Hamas sites in Gaza in response, and that it has mobilised tens of thousands of reservists.

    At least one Palestinian has been killed in the strikes, local health officials say.

    The rocket barrages from Gaza - which is governed by Hamas - began just after dawn on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath and the day of the festival of Simchat Torah.

    As sirens sounded across Israel, the IDF announced that "terrorists" had infiltrated Israeli territory "in a number of different locations".

    It told civilians in southern and central areas to stay next to shelters, and inside shelters in the area surrounding Gaza.

    Footage posted online appeared to show a group of heavily armed Palestinian militants dressed in black fatigues driving around Sderot in a pick-up truck.

    In one video, the same militants seemed to be exchanging fire with Israeli forces on the streets of the town, which is only 1.6km (1 mile) from Gaza.

    There are also unconfirmed reports in the Palestinian media that a number of Israelis have been taken captive by militants and footage circulating of Palestinians in Gaza driving Israeli military vehicles.

    The number of Israeli casualties resulting from the attacks was not immediately clear.

    But the Shaar HaNegev Regional Council announced that its leader, Ofir Liebstein, was killed in an exchange of fire with militants when he went defend his community.

    The rocket barrages meanwhile continued throughout Saturday morning, with Israeli media reporting that more than 2,500 projectiles had so far been launched towards Israel.

    An initial report from Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service said one person had been killed by the Palestinian rocket fire.

    Later, a hospital in the southern city of Ashkelon later said it was treating 68 casualties alone, while another hospital in Beer Sheva reported 80 others.

    "Citizens of Israel we are at war, not an operation, not an escalation, a war," Prime Minister Netanyahu said in a statement. "This morning Hamas launched a murderous surprise attack against the State of Israel and its citizens."

    "I convened the heads of the security system, first of all I instructed to cleanse the settlements of the terrorists who had infiltrated - this operation is being carried out during these hours."

    "At the same time, I ordered an extensive reserve mobilization and a retaliatory war with a strength and scope that the enemy had never known."

    A senior Hamas military commander announced the start of the operation in a broadcast on Hamas media, calling on Palestinians everywhere to fight.

    "This is the day of the greatest battle to end the last occupation on Earth," Mohammed Deif said.

    They've grossly underestimated Palestinian combat capabilities and paid the price. This whole situation has also revealed the truth about all that Western propaganda claiming that the Israeli military is unbeatable.

    That's impressive but they don't have the power to hold positions. Israeli jets will bomb them.

    I wonder what's the next move ? Using those captured people as an exchange money in negociations ?

    Israel reaps what they sow. Their military superiority is worthless against desperate people. They must negotiate and stop with their settlements.

    Israelis and UkroNazis are basically the same when it comes to their racially and ideologically driven hatred. That's why, I have zero sympathy for either of them.

    Israel's revenge will be bloody, that's their method. But they will only strengthen the Palestinian resistance, as always.

    OMG what is happening is completely unbelievable .

    Israeli intel & army were totally maneuvered and defeated by Palestinians .

    Palestinians crossed the borders with Gaza , get controlled over the israelis military points , police stations , damaging electric station ,burned tanks and vehicles .

    They even occupied cities & military bases and took a lot of war Prisoner  and killed more Israeli soldiers .

    They used drones & rockets  , well organized attack which showing the reality of weakness of geography of Israel .

    Imagine just how little the Palestinians have and how much they achieved in an advance that is still more than what the Ukrainians managed with NATO weapons and satellites and funding for more than 4 months, in just 4 hours in one of the most monitored 356sq meters in the world, considering Israel gave some arms to the Ukies and 500k shells it appears they haven't learned anything from the war, they better install cope cages soon as APS are useless against swarm of drones, so far 5 Merkava IV been either destroyed/neutralized, it's humiliating but Gaza will be flattened again sadly .
