« Israeli airstrikes struck targets in Gaza on Sunday following a surprise attack by Palestinian militants on Israel.
Footage shows several airstrikes hitting buildings in the city, with plumes of thick black smoke rising after the explosions.
On Saturday, October 7, Palestinian militants fired around 3,000 rockets from the Gaza Strip in a surprise attack against Israel.
Meanwhile, Palestinian gunmen crossed into southern Israel via land, sea and air. At the time of publication, over 700 Israelis have been killed and more than 2,200 injured in the surprise attack, according to Israeli authorities.
In retaliation, Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) launched airstrikes against Hamas targets in Gaza and deployed forces in dozens of locations where fighting has been reported.
413 Palestinians were killed and nearly 2,300 were wounded during retaliatory strikes on Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared his country was ‘at war’ saying there would be ‘severe retaliation’ in response to the attack by Palestinian militants.
Senior Hamas member Saleh al-Arouri said the militant group was ready ‘for all options, including a war and an escalation on all levels’ according to media reports.
The Palestinian offensive comes on the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War when Israel was attacked by Arab states on Yom Kippur. »
