<p>Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proclaimed that his country was “at war” and demanded that all army reserves be brought into service. The assault brought up memories of the 1973 war, which took place almost exactly 50 years ago.</p>
<p>Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office issued a statement on Saturday night announcing that Israel will cease providing Gaza with gasoline, products, and power. After Israel, which provides virtually all of the territories’ electricity, turned off its electrical supply earlier in the day, a large portion of Gaza was already plunged into darkness by the time it became dark outside.</p>
<p>Netanyahu said that the “first phase” of the counterattack was over and that the bulk of the Hamas terrorists had been driven back.</p>
<p>He pledged to keep up the onslaught “without reservation and without respite.”</p>
<p>The declaration followed a Saturday morning surprise strike by Hamas terrorists on Israel.</p>
<p>In the Mediterranean city of Alexandria, an Egyptian policeman opened fire on Israeli visitors on Sunday, killing one Egyptian and at least two Israelis, according to local media.</p>
<p>Another person was hurt in the incident that occurred at the Pompey’s Pillar tourist destination in Alexandria, according to a security officer who was cited by the security-affiliated Extra News television program. It said that the alleged attacker had been taken into custody.</p>
<p>Two fatalities in Alexandria were reported by Israel’s Zaka rescue agency.</p>
<p>250 people have died in Israel thus far.</p>
<p>At least 250 people were killed and 1,500 injured, according to Israeli media, which cited rescue service personnel. This makes Saturday’s unexpected early-morning onslaught by Hamas the bloodiest Israeli attack in decades.</p>
<p>According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip have resulted in at least 232 fatalities and at least 1,700 injuries.</p>
<p>In heartbreaking footage released on social media, Hamas militants can be seen kidnapping unknown numbers of citizens and troops into Gaza, a subject that Israel finds particularly sensitive.</p>
<p>Lt. Col. Jonathan Steinberg, a senior commander in charge of the military’s well-known infantry unit Nahal Brigade, was one of those slain in Israel.</p>
<p>Egypt steps in regarding Israeli captives</p>
<p>According to an Egyptian official, Israel has asked Cairo for assistance in ensuring the safety of Israelis who have been kidnapped, and Egypt’s intelligence head has been in touch with Hamas and the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad to gather information.</p>
<p>The person said that Palestinian authorities claimed they did not yet have a “full picture” of the captives but added that those that were transferred to Gaza were moved to “secure locations” around the region.</p>
<p>The official, who requested anonymity because he was not allowed to brief the media, added, “It’s clear that they have a big number — several dozens.”</p>
<p>He claimed that Egyptian intelligence had also discussed a possible cease-fire with both parties, but Israel was not amenable to one “at this stage.”</p>
<p>In clashes with Hamas militants in Gaza and southern Israel, an Israeli military official claims that “hundreds of terrorists” have been killed and “dozens” have been detained.</p>
<p>On Sunday, more than 24 hours after the Palestinian terrorist organization began an unprecedented attack against Israel that resulted in hundreds of deaths, tens of thousands of missile launches, and the recapture of hostages for the blockaded Gaza Strip, Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari spoke to media.</p>
<p>Israeli airstrikes over Gaza have destroyed structures as it fights terrorists in the southern part of the territory.</p>
<p>According to a UN peacekeeping force stationed along Lebanon’s southern border, “everyone should exercise restraint” and utilize the force’s “liaison and coordination mechanisms to de-escalate” in order to stop a rapid worsening of the security situation.</p>
<p>It claimed to have seen many rockets launched from southeast Lebanon into “Israeli-occupied territory,” which were then met by artillery fire from Israel.</p>
<p>The declaration came soon after Hezbollah claimed to have shot at Israeli positions in the contentious Chebaa Farms along the border with the Syrian Golan Heights that Israel has seized. In order to “contain the situation and avoid a more serious escalation,” the UNIFIL force said it is in constant communication with authorities on both sides of the border at all levels.</p>
<p>On Sunday, the terrorist Hezbollah organization in Lebanon launched dozens of rockets and shells toward three Israeli positions in a contested region along the border with Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.</p>
<p>In a statement, Hezbollah claimed that the strike, which included “many rockets and shells,” was carried out in support of the “Palestinian resistance.” It claimed that direct hits were made to Israeli positions.</p>
<p>The Lebanese districts were retaliated at by the Israeli military, although there was no immediate news of casualties.</p>
<p>Israel’s military said Sunday that a Hamas terrorist strike in the southern region of the nation claimed the lives of at least 26 Israeli troops.</p>
<p>The victim is one of more than 250 people who have died in the bloodiest assault on Israelis in decades.</p>
<p>The two hostage problem, according to the Israeli military, has been’resolved’</p>
<p>Although two hostage situations had been “resolved,” an Israeli military official did not specify if all of the hostages had been freed alive.</p>
<p>In their surprise assault on Israel’s troops on Saturday, Hamas terrorists had kidnapped hostages as they struggled to mount a defense. Even when it became dark, there were still gunfights going on, and two towns had hostage situations due to extremists. In a third town, a police station was taken over by militants; it took Israeli troops till Sunday am to retake the structure.</p>
<p>Israel was battling Hamas incursions in eight locations on Sunday, according to the Israeli military.</p>
<p>A hospital in the Israeli seaside town of Ashkelon was targeted by terrorist rocket fire before dawn on Sunday. According to top hospital administrator Tal Bergman, the facility was damaged.</p>
<p>Video from the Barzilai Medical Center showed what looked to be an empty room and a corridor with a large hole punched in the wall and pieces of rubble lying about. There were no casualties reported.</p>
<p>After dusk, Israeli bombings on Gaza became more intense, leveling residential structures in enormous explosions, including a 14-story skyscraper in downtown Gaza City that housed dozens of apartments as well as offices for Hamas.</p>
<p>Just before, Israeli soldiers fired a warning shot.</p>
<p>Residents of adjoining apartment complexes were given a stern warning to leave right away at 3 in the morning via a loudspeaker atop a mosque in Gaza City. A few minutes later, an adjacent five-story building was turned to ashes by an Israeli attack.</p>
<p>A Hamas rocket fire, which followed an Israeli attack, targeted four cities, including Tel Aviv and a neighboring suburb. The Israeli military said that Hamas launched more than 3,500 missiles during the day.</p>
<p>According to their governments, two people from Thailand and Cambodia perished in the violence in Israel on Sunday.</p>
<p>According to information obtained by Thailand’s foreign minister Parnpree Bahiddha-Nukara, the assault by Hamas terrorists resulted in the injuries of eight Thais and the kidnapping of 11 others.</p>
<p>He said that Thai police were seeking to confirm the details with Israeli authorities.</p>
<p>Srettha Thavisin, the prime minister of Thailand, has placed the nation’s air force on alert to evacuate its inhabitants if necessary. Many of the thousands of Thai nationals who work in Israel are employed in the agricultural industry.</p>
<p>According to a statement from the Foreign Ministry, Cambodia has around 450 students studying in Israel.</p>
<p>According to FlightAware, by Saturday evening, airlines had canceled more than 80 flights to and from Tel Aviv, or around 14% of all booked flights, as a result of the unprecedented strike in Israel by the terrorist organization Hamas.</p>
<p>Although a Delta return flight was able to leave Tel Aviv on Saturday night, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines both cancelled flights on Saturday night and Sunday night from New York’s JFK Airport to Tel Aviv. Another flight from San Francisco on Saturday was canceled by United Airlines.</p>
<p>Over Greenland, a previous United aircraft made a U-turn and headed back to San Francisco.</p>
<p>Several of the German airline Lufthansa’s flights between Frankfurt and Tel Aviv have been canceled.</p>
<p>According to the foreign ministry of China, the nation is “deeply concerned over the current escalation of tensions and violence between Palestine and Israel.”</p>
<p>The statement said, “The conflict’s recurrence shows once again that the protracted deadlock of the peace process cannot go on.”</p>
<p>The establishment of an independent State of Palestine and the implementation of the two-state solution are the primary solutions to the conflict.</p>
<p>China’s foreign ministry promised to continue working with the international community to find a solution for peace, but encouraged everyone to move faster and “facilitate an early resumption of peace talks between Palestine and Israel.”</p>
