By: Manayaninfo.com

A deadly conflict erupted on October 8, 2023, between Hamas and Israel, resulting in hundreds of casualties on both sides. 

Hamas launched attacks on Israel, killing at least 300 Israelis, injuring hundreds, and kidnapping dozens, while Israel responded with airstrikes on Gaza, causing over 300 Palestinian casualties. 

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) urged Gaza civilians to evacuate, and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declared the start of a "long and difficult war." 

Hamas' military commander, Mohamed Deif, named the operation "al Aqsa Storm" in response to attacks on women, desecration of the al Aqsa mosque, and the Gaza siege. 

Hamas claimed to have taken "prisoners of war" and shared videos of alleged hostage soldiers. 

U.S. President Joe Biden expressed unwavering support for Israel's right to self-defense. 

The conflict escalated tensions in the region, marking one of the bloodiest and most complex episodes in the Middle East in recent years, with concerns of potential Israeli troop deployment in Gaza and questions raised about Israeli intelligence failure.
