Israel Declares “Swords Of Iron” War After “Operation Al-Aqsa Storm” Surprise Attack

A foreboding new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin just turned 71, says his office released the official statement: “This year, Putin will celebrate his 20th birthday as Russian president. Although 7 October is a weekend day in 2023, Putin will have a working day”—and it will be a working day for President Putin due to Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “declaring a state of war” earlier this morning and warning his peoples: “Citizens of Israel, we are at war…And we will win…The enemy will pay a price like they have never known before”.
Immediately prior to Prime Minister Netanyahu declaring a state of war now exits in Israel, this report notes, Palestinian militant and supreme military commander Mohammed Deif of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, ordered 5,000 rockets to be fired into Israel early Saturday to begin what he called “Operation Al-Aqsa Storm”—a surprise attack that included Hamas forces invading Israel from the land, sea and air, and supreme commander Deif called on Arab citizens of Israel—who make up 20% of the country’s population—and West Bank Palestinians to take up arms and fight with the war proclamation: “This is your day to make the enemy understand that his time has ended…Everyone who has a gun should take it out…The time has come”.
In quick response to the “Operation Al-Aqsa Storm” surprise attack, this report continues, the Israel Defense Force (IDF) launched a massive “Operation Swords of Iron” counteroffensive [Click HERE for real time IDF updates], and at 08:23 announced: “The IDF declares a state of alert for war…Over the past hour, the Hamas terrorist organization launched massive barrages of rockets from Gaza into Israel, and its terrorist operatives have infiltrated into Israel in a number of different locations in the south…Civilians in southern and central Israel must remain near shelters, and in the area surrounding the Gaza Strip, inside shelters…The Chief of the General staff is currently conducting a situational assessment and approving plans for the IDF’s continued activity…The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for these attacks and will face consequences for them”.
During the chaotic opening hours of the war, this report details, the Times of Israel article “Residents Near Gaza Strip Beg For IDF Help As They Fight Off Terrorists” grimly revealed: “Speaking from safe rooms close to the infiltrated Gaza border, locals say there is little military presence in their communities as gunmen freely move house-to-house”—a grim revelation joined by the Israel Hayom News Service reporting: “There were unconfirmed reports on some 30 Israelis captured, with Israel confirming that the mayor of the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council was killed in a gunbattle in one of the raids…Some four Israelis were killed in the southern town of Rahat due to rocket fire”.
With dozens of IDF fighter jets currently striking Hamas targets in Gaza, this report concludes, Prime Minister Netanyahu vowed bloody revenge on Hamas declaring the militants will pay an “unprecedented price” and warned them: “You have made a grave mistake”.
