Introduction: The ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas has captured global attention in recent days. The escalation in violence has resulted in the loss of innocent lives, the displacement of women and children, and horrifying scenes of terrorism and attacks against humanity.

Maddie Hale analyses some of the most shocking footage of the events that have unfolded so far, shedding light on the devastating impact of the conflict.

On Saturday, Hamas launched a barrage of 5,000 rockets from the Gaza Strip towards Israel, reaching as far as Tel Aviv. The Gaza Strip, controlled by Hamas since 2006, is a small area bordered by Israel and Egypt. With a population of over two million Palestinians, it served as the launching point for these attacks, known as Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.

Shortly after the rocket barrage, Hamas fighters crossed into Israel through security barriers, utilising various means such as motorboats and parachutes. These surprise attacks resulted in the loss of at least 250 lives, making it the deadliest day Israel has experienced in 50 years.
