Israel and the United States, Israel’s ally, have been warned by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi on Saturday that the country has “took the red lines” in its continuing confrontation with Hamas.
The bloodiest Palestinian militant attack on Israel in history was spearheaded by Hamas on October 7, and Israel responded with its most intense airstrikes on Gaza to ever before. According to the Associated Press, nearly 1,400 people had been murdered in Israel as of Sunday. Meanwhile, the AP reported that over 8,000 Palestinians had perished in Gaza.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, declared that his nation was “at war” and blocked off Gaza’s access to fuel, food, electricity, and medical supplies. With an approximately 2.3 million people living in the region, Israel has mobilized up 360,000 army reservists in anticipation of a possible ground invasion.
