On October 7, Hamas fired several thousand rockets into Israel and announced the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. Thousands of militants invaded Israeli territory, seizing dozens of military equipment and over a hundred hostages. Against this backdrop, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu announced that the country was in a state of war.
The response operation of the Israel Defense Forces was called “Iron Swords”; one of its goals was the destruction of Hamas. The Israeli air force carried out strikes on hundreds of Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, and Israel’s National Security Council decided to cut off supplies of water, food, goods, electricity and fuel to the strip. On October 13, Israel told the UN that 1.1 million Palestinians must evacuate to southern Gaza within 24 hours ahead of the ground operation in Gaza.
Israel previously evacuated embassies from Egypt and Morocco.
