The attack began at daybreak with thousands of rockets fired from Gaza, hitting Ashalon, Biva, and as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. At the same time, dozens of Hamas Fighters crossed the heavily fortified border in at least seven places.
Since then, the Israeli defense force has been engaged in a gun battle with Hamas in numerous locations and, hitting back hard, bombing Hamas targets high-rise buildings and health facilities in the densely populated Gaza Strip, which is just 16 square miles and home to 2.3 million Palestinians.
More recently, tensions have escalated with violent Palestinian protests along the Gaza frontier. In negotiations with Qatar, Egypt, and the United Nations, Hamas has pushed for Israeli concessions that could loosen the 17-year blockade on the enclave and help halt a worsening financial crisis that has sharpened public criticism of its rule.
Some political analysts have linked Hamas’ attack to ongoing US-brokered talks on the normalization of ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia. So far, reports of possible concessions to Palestinians in the negotiations have involved Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, not Gaza.
