The land, sea and air assault on Israel launched by Palestinian militants on Saturday prompted Israel to respond with heavy strikes on Gazan cities, which continued into Sunday morning. The Israeli military reported fighting was underway in seven border communities and an army base, and tanks were seen crossing farmland in parts of southern Israel, heading south toward Gaza.
Scores of reservists waited at rural bus stops, trying to get to their bases after Mr. Netanyahu issued a call-up. In one potential indication that Israel might be preparing for a broader operation inside Gaza, the Israeli military said it was evacuating residents of 24 villages in the area of the border.
Here’s what else to know:
Hamas has taken Israeli soldiers and civilians into captivity,which could complicate any retaliatory operations. Video verified by The Times appears to show several Israelis being taken hostage by Hamas militants in the Be’eri kibbutz, just under three miles from the border.
As Israel’s military began releasing the names of soldiers killed in the assault, witness accounts of the battles with Palestinian militants have been emerging. “There were terrorists inside the kibbutz, inside our neighborhood and — at some point — outside our window,” Amir Tibon recalled in a phone interview. “We could hear them talk. We could hear them run. We could hear them shooting their guns at our house, at our windows.”
The Israeli government said Saturday evening that it was cutting off its electricity supply for Gaza, which gets two-thirds of its power from Israel. The streets of Gaza City, the enclave’s largest urban area, had emptied out amid concerns of an intensification in airstrikes. Gazans living close to the Israeli border fled to areas further inside the enclave, fearing an Israeli ground invasion.
Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite militant group that fought a war with Israel in 2006, said Sunday morning that it had attacked three Israeli posts with artillery shells and guided missiles in the Shebaa Farms area, land it considers to be occupied Lebanese territory. Hamas had urged armed groups in Lebanon to join its assaults on Israel.
The timing of the assault was notable, hitting Israel at one of the most difficult moments in its history. It came after months of profound anxiety about the cohesion of Israeli society and the readiness of its military, a crisis set off by the far-right government’s efforts to reduce the power of the judiciary.
Clashes have broken out between Palestinians and Israeli forces at regular flash points in the occupied West Bank, according to local news reports. Palestinians had declared a general strike across the West Bank and Israeli forces had closed some major roads in the territory to traffic. Earlier on Sunday, Palestinian health officials said that seven Palestinians had been killed in clashes with Israeli forces over the past 24 hours…..
“The disaster that befell Israel on the holiday of Simchat Torah is the clear responsibility of one person: Benjamin Netanyahu.”
“The prime minister, who has prided himself on his vast political experience and irreplaceable wisdom in security matters, completely failed to identify the dangers he was consciously leading Israel into when establishing a government of annexation and dispossession, when appointing Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben-Gvir to key positions, while embracing a foreign policy that openly ignored the existence and rights of Palestinians.”
