The death toll in Israel has skyrocketed in recent weeks following a series of Iranian-backed terror attacks. More than 700 Israelis have been confirmed dead, and at least 2,500 have been injured following the attacks from Hamas, a Palestinian Islamic terrorist organization.
The war has not stopped and it won’t for quite some time as Israel is reportedly fighting to retake control of some areas from terrorist invaders in the southern part of the country.
Iranian backed terrorists launched thousands of rockets into Israel early Saturday morning, sending people throughout the country running for bomb shelters.
The terrorists used drones to drop bombs on Israeli defenses on the border, making them inoperable as terrorists used explosives and bulldozers to smash through Israel’s border wall. Over 1,000 terrorists then came into the country on paragliders, boats, motorcycles, trucks, and by foot as they hunted down innocent civilians door to door to slaughter or kidnap them.
The number of people kidnapped is now at more than 100, a figure that included people from around the world, including the U.S., according to Israel Minister for Strategic Affairs Ron Dermer.
Major U.S. officials compared the attacks to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. They said that after adjusting for differences in population size between the U.S. and Israel, the attacks were comparable to several 9/11s.
A spokesperson for Hamas told the BBC that it received support from Iran and others, although he declined to say who else provided support.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei posted on social media: “God willing, the cancer of the usurper Zionist regime will be eradicated at the hands of the Palestinian people and the Resistance forces throughout the region.”
The Biden administration “has strengthened and emboldened the regime in Iran,” said the foreign policy experts at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a nonprofit focusing on national security and foreign policy.

First they bombed Israeli observation towers and weapons systems on the border, then fired hundreds of rockets as terrorists on paragliders flew over the border.
