    Local media reported early Sunday that at least 750 Israelis have gone missing since conflict erupted on Saturday morning.

    “According to an unofficial report, approximately 750 Israelis are currently missing,” the Jerusalem Post reported on X.

    On Saturday, Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, claiming responsibility for the surprise attack in retaliation to the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and rising settler violence. It claimed to have fired missiles and kidnapped many Israelis.

    In response, the Israeli army launched Operation Swords of Iron against Hamas in Gaza.

    According to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “we are at war.” He urged Palestinians in Gaza to flee, claiming that Israel’s troops will reduce “all Hamas hiding places into rubble.”

    According to medical sources in Gaza, at least 232 Palestinians have been killed in the attacks, while the Israeli death toll has risen to 300.

    According to the Israeli army, Hamas has launched over 3,000 missiles against Israel since Saturday morning.

    It stated in a statement on X that soldiers had been kidnapped and held hostage in Gaza, and confirmed that over 1,000 Israelis had been injured.
