On October 7, the Hamas terrorist group launched a surprise attack of unprecedented scale on Israel from the Gaza Strip, killing over 700 people in one day. The Jewish state immediately declared a war, and the decades-old conflict with the Palestinians took a turn for the worse.

“Every Hamas member is a dead man,” vowed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeking to avenge the weekend attack. Israeli bombing has killed over 1,100 Palestinians so far. The international community, including India, has condemned the brutality and appealed for safety of civilians, they are also trying to secure the safety of their nationals in the conflict region.

Did you know Israel has launched a similar war on Hamas four times in the past? How is the militant outfit continuing to put up its fight with the well-armed Israel? How do Palestinians view Hamas? Here are some articles from The Hindu that will give you an in-depth understanding on West Asian geopolitics.
