The terrorists dragged 203 individuals as hostages to Gaza, with over 100 yet unaccounted for, and a disturbing number of them, approximately 30, suspected to be minors.
During the weekend, the Israel Defense Force (IDF) executed its second brief ground invasion of Gaza, focusing on neutralizing terrorists and their bases. Additionally, a recent IDF update highlighted the elimination of Atsam Abu Raffa, the mastermind behind Hamas’s aerial strategies, in a precise airstrike in Gaza.

He was accompanied by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and cabinet member Benny Gantz during this significant announcement.
