On Saturday (October 7) morning, Hamas launched an attack on Israel. Thousands of rockets fell on Israeli homes. We know that the victims of this attack must now be counted in the hundreds. The fate of many people kidnapped by Palestinians is unknown. Across Europe, the Hamas attack caused outrage. The Palestinians who live in Western countries on a daily basis approach the matter differently.

Hamas Attack on Israel started on Saturday (October 7) at 11:30 PM Eastern Time. Palestinians from the Gaza Strip launched a rocket attack on Israeli cities. Missiles fell, among others, on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. At the same time, fighters crossed the border. Some invaded Israel by land, others by sea, while others used paragliders for this purpose.

The Israeli services were completely surprised by the attack. We now know that at least 300 people were killed and over a thousand were injured. Dozens of Israeli citizens were captured.

As a result of the bombing in the Gaza Strip, 232 people have been killed and another 1700 have been injured. This is at least according to the information from the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
