Israel’s defense minister warned of a multifront war, with attacks from Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, Iraq, Yemen, and Iran.
Recent incidents include missile attacks off Yemen’s coast, Hezbollah firing into Israel, and attacks in Egypt and India.
“We are in a multifront war and coming under attack from seven theatres,” defense minister Yoav Gallant said.
Israeli forces continue to bombard Gaza, causing civilian casualties, leading to international concern and calls for a ceasefire.
The UN reports a quarter of Gaza’s population is starving, and Israel blames Hamas for civilian deaths and humanitarian issues.
