On October 7, within the scope of the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation announced by the military wing of the Palestinian Hamas movement, Israel was subjected to an unprecedented scale rocket attack from the Gaza Strip. After this, the organization’s fighters entered the border areas in southern Israel, opened fire on both military and civilians, and took more than 200 people hostage. According to local officials in Israel, more than 1.4 thousand people died, including 300 military personnel, and more than 5 thousand were injured.
In response, the Israel Defense Forces launched Operation Iron Sword against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Within days, the Israeli army took control of all settlements near the Gaza border and began carrying out air strikes on targets, including civilians in the strip.

The number of victims in the Gaza Strip exceeded 10 thousand, and more than 24.8 thousand people were injured. According to various sources, it is stated that approximately 150 Israelis may be held captive by Hamas. The movement itself stated that there were approximately 200-250 prisoners in the Gaza Strip.
