On Oct. 7, Palestinian militants—primarily from Hamas—launched a multi-faceted attack against Israel that included approximately 3,000 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel and the infiltration of approximately 1,000 Palestinian militants into Israeli territory. These militants have killed at least 900 Israelis and injured over 2,600 others, and they have taken about 150 hostages. In response Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu stated that Israel was “at war,” and the Israeli military launched airstrikes toward Gaza. At least 830 Palestinians have been killed and 4,000 have been injured.
