Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has officially declared a state of war in response to the deadly surprise attack launched by Palestinian militants against Israel and its citizens on October 7, 2023.
Netanyahu has provided reassurance to Israeli citizens and residents, promising swift and unprecedented action against the Palestinian aggressors. He emphasized that the nation is now in a state of war, no longer merely conducting operations in rounds.
The official Twitter account of Israel’s Prime Minister posted a video in which he outlined the extensive efforts being undertaken to secure victory for the people of Israel.
He stated, “Citizens of Israel, We are at war, not in an operation or rounds, but at war. This morning, Hamas launched a murderous surprise attack against the State of Israel and its citizens. We have been in this since the early morning hours
“I conveyed to the heads of the security establishment and ordered, first of all, to clear out all the communities that have been infiltrated with terrorists. This is currently being carried out, at the same time, I have ordered an extensive mobilization of reserves and that we return fire of a magnitude that the enemy has not known. The enemy will pay an unprecedented price.
“In the meantime, I call the citizens of Israel to strictly adhere to the directives of the IDF and the Home Front Command, We are at war and we will win it”.
The Ambassador of Israel to India, Sri Lanka, and Bhutan, Naor Gilon has expressed deep concern about the ongoing situation in Israel. He has informed the people of Israel of achieving victory in the ongoing assault on the country.
He wrote # that Israel is under a combined attack from Gaza during the Jewish holiday. Both by rockets and ground infiltration of Hamas terrorists. The situation is not simple but Israel will prevail”.
However, a viral video shared on Twitter showed Israeli female soldiers in Palestinian custody being subjected to physical abuse and harassment. Disturbingly, it was reported that she had been violated while being forcibly dragged into a car.
Meanwhile, Palestinian Islamic extremists were seen on the streets of Israel, using bikes and SUVs. Speculation suggested that they were conducting door-to-door searches to target innocent civilians.
The internet has been filled with discussion and reports following the attack launched by the Palestinian military, which has unfortunately resulted in the loss of over four lives and numerous civilian casualties.
