Invasion of Palestinian troops into Israel, military operations. The head of the military wing of the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, Mohammed ad-Deif, announced the start of a military operation against Israel. This morning there has already been a massive rocket attack on the south and center of Israel, and martial law has been declared. Palestinian rockets fell on the village of Kharas in the Hebron region and other settlements. Armed mobile Palestinian units have penetrated into populated areas adjacent to the Gaza Strip. Palestinians are massively destroying and seizing Israeli equipment. It is known that one of the Israeli Merkava Mk 4 tanks was destroyed and three Hummer armored vehicles were captured. Judging by the scale of the invasion, the Israeli intelligence service Mossad did not know about such a large-scale action. Currently, attacks on Israeli settlements around the Gaza Strip continue, and local urban battles are taking place. The IDF is now closing roads near the border with the Gaza Strip. There are many killings of civilians happening on the streets now, but this cannot be shown.

The use of JDAM bombs by Israeli F-16 aircraft in the Gaza Strip. The Israel Defense Forces declared the Gaza Strip a closed military zone and began striking Hamas units and the Islamic Jihad group in the Gaza Strip. The video shows a US-made Israeli F-16I aircraft preparing for takeoff, with JDAMs mounted on the aircraft. After being dropped, the bomb opens its wings and flies towards the target. According to the latest data, the Israeli Army hit 10 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, including the Hamas intelligence headquarters. The UN said that more than twenty thousand residents of the Gaza Strip were forced to leave their homes.

The Israel Defense Forces began to carry out general mobilization and form armored strike groups. The video shows the transfer of military equipment, Israeli M113 armored personnel carriers, 155-mm M109A5 self-propelled guns, American-made HMMWV armored vehicles and Israeli-made Merkava Mark 4 tanks. According to the latest data, the evacuation of the population from the northern regions of Israel bordering Lebanon has begun. The Israeli leadership also turned to the United States for help.

Israel has blocked the Gaza Strip. Violence begets violence, this is the only way to characterize the situation in Israel and the Gaza Strip now. Israel is shelling residential areas in the Gaza Strip, Hamas is shelling residential areas in Israel. It is worth noting that Israeli strikes are more targeted, since they have modern weapons, but civilians in the Gaza Strip still suffer. Hamas uses homemade weapons, their accuracy is extremely low. Previously, Israel notified residents of the Gaza Strip about attacks on specific buildings, using the “Knock on the Roof” protocol to reduce the number of casualties, first launching a rocket at a target without a warhead, or notifying local residents with leaflets or SMS. This protocol has now been cancelled. The number of victims at the music festival became known, 260 people were killed, among them many citizens of other countries; why Hamas did this is not clear. Many people ask whether there will be sanctions against Israel, no, there will not be, since such actions of Hamas are condemned by the international community. Now regarding the situation, the Gaza Strip is blocked by the Israeli army, there is no electricity and no water supply. According to estimates from the ground, the Israeli army is displacing Hamas forces from the occupied territories, but in street battles, the Israeli army has significant losses. Hamas began to use MANPADS and homemade air defense systems, which made it difficult for Israeli aviation. Now people are trying to leave Israel; at Ben Gurion International Airport, which came under Hamas fire, chaos can be said to be happening. If you look at things realistically, Hamas will not be able to win this war, but the Gaza Strip will most likely now leave many residents and it will cease to be Palestinian territory. The Israeli leadership announced that there would be no negotiations with Hamas and that it would be destroyed.

The Israel Defense Forces have published footage of captured weapons from the Palestinian group Hamas. The video contains many weapons from all over the world, including RPG-7 and their Chinese counterparts Type 69, Italian TS6 anti-tank mines, Al-Yassin anti-tank grenades, MANPADS and other weapons. Apparently, weapons reached Hamas through all possible channels from many countries around the world.

Israeli Saar 6 class corvettes attacked the Gaza Strip. Israel began using the latest Sa'ar 6 class corvettes to fire at Hamas positions on the coast of the Gaza Strip. For shelling, corvettes use mainly 76 mm Oto Melara naval artillery guns, made in Italy. Saar 6 class corvettes have fairly powerful anti-aircraft and anti-missile weapons for a ship of this size. The ships are based on the German K130 Braunschweig class corvettes. There are currently 3 ships of this project in service. The Saar 6 class corvette costs about $550 million.

Israeli aircraft destroyed the main weapons developer Hamas. The press service of the Israeli army reported the liquidation in the Gaza Strip of the head of the Hamas arms and industry department, Mohsen Abu Zina. Leading Hamas weapons developer Mohsin Abu Zin was killed by an Israeli precision-guided bomb. During the operation in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army has already discovered a large number of Hamas weapons. It is worth noting that although Hamas’s weapons are homemade, they really pose a threat to Israeli military equipment. Reportedly, 400 suicide vests, 760 grenade launchers, and 106 rockets and shells were found. In addition, the Israeli military discovered almost 1.5 thousand grenades, as well as 375 firearms.

The Israeli army has published footage of the destruction of a Hamas outpost in the northern Gaza Strip, where Badr-3 missiles were stored. The Badr-3 missile was developed in Iran, Hamas produces them itself at its bases in the Gaza Strip, presumably some of the missiles were previously received from Iran. The Badr-3 missile is equipped with a warhead weighing 250 kg and has an estimated range of 160 km. There are no exact data on the missiles' flight range. The Badr-3 missile explodes 20 meters above the target and upon explosion forms a cloud of 1,400 fragments, the missile’s damage radius is about 350 meters.

Israeli aviation continues to actively use Spice-2000 precision-guided bombs in the Gaza Strip. The video shows such a bomb hitting a building where, according to the IDF, members of Hamas units were seen. The Israeli air bomb "Spice-2000" is guided by GPS and dropped at a distance of up to 60 kilometers from the target. The Spice-2000 glide bomb is produced by the Israeli company Rafael Advanced Defense and weighs 907 kilograms

The Israeli army has discovered the largest Hamas tunnel under the Gaza Strip. The IDF says the tunnel is four kilometers long and the entrance is located just 400 meters from the Erez crossing, which Gaza residents use daily to enter Israel. It is worth noting that to create the tunnel, Hamas used a homemade roadheader. The dimensions of the underground structure make it possible to place civil and military cargo there, as well as a large number of people. The interior is equipped with ventilation, water and electricity.

Iran attacked Israel on the night of April 13-14. Iran's operation is called "True Promise" and is Iran's response to Israel's attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus. This is Iran's first direct attack on Israel from its territory, reportedly targeting Israeli military targets. The strike on Israel was carried out using kamikaze drones Shahed-136, Shahed-131 and jet drones Shahed-238. Sumar cruise missiles and Fateh-110 and Khaybar ballistic missiles are also used, capable of carrying different types of warheads, including multiple warheads. Other types of missiles are also used. Data on the number of Iranian missiles and drones are contradictory, with some media reporting that Iran has used 185 drones, 36 cruise missiles and 110 surface-to-surface missiles. The Iranian attack is currently considered the most massive drone attack in world history. In repelling an attack by Iran, Israel is assisted by aircraft from the United States, Great Britain and France. Jordan also intercepts missiles; the video shows debris from a downed Iranian missile in Aman. Israel has reported intercepting 99% of Iran's missiles and drones, but this cannot be true as Israeli residents film Iranian missile strikes. The video shows rare footage of an Iranian ballistic missile interception taking place outside the Earth's atmosphere. Footage of Iranian missile attacks on the Ramon airbase in the Negev desert was also published. According to the latest data, Israel reported that the damage from the attacks was insignificant and that it would launch a retaliatory strike against Iran within 48 hours. The United States announced that it would not support Israel's attack on Iran. The commander of the Iranian IRGC said that Iran's operation against Israel was more successful than expected and he does not plan to continue it, but in case of an Israeli strike, he will strike back with a more powerful strike. The following shows the work of Israeli air defense and attacks by Iranian missiles and drones.
