Palestinian Hamas forces launched an "unprecedented large-scale attack" against Israel on Saturday with paragliders, ground forces, rockets, drones and small sea vessels.

From The Middle East Eye, "Israeli army: Infiltration came from land, air and sea":
The Israeli military spokesperson has said Palestinian fighters infiltrated Israeli cities through land, air and sea in the ongoing assault.

According to the Ynet news website, the spokesperson said small vessels came from the sea, paragliders landed from the air, and dozens of fighters entered through the fence separating Israel from Gaza after using explosives to destroy the barriers.

The spokesperson said they suspect other fighters might have entered through tunnels.

Hamas's military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, released footage earlier showing its fighters using paragliders flying over the border fence. Middle East Eye could not independently verify whether the video was pre-recorded or not.

Al-Qassam Brigades also released footage of its fighters taking over Israeli military posts and sites near the border fence.

[...] Palestinian fighters said they have captured Israeli soldiers after they infiltrated military posts and sites near the border separating Israel and Gaza.

Hamas's military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, released videos of their fighters capturing a number of Israeli soldiers, including some removed from inside military tanks and taken into custody.

It was not immediately clear how many have been captured. The Israeli military has not commented on the reports.
Hamas appears to have captured and killed dozens of Israeli soldiers.



As a reminder, Russia tacitly threatened to arm Hamas back in March in response to the US and NATO arming Ukraine.

It will be interesting to know how much (if any) of the equipment Hamas is using comes from Russia or was sold on the black market by corrupt officials Ukraine.

There's tons more footage on Twitter (FIRST VIDEO IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC):

It's being claimed they captured a General:

Israel has already responded with strikes on Gaza and no doubt many, many more are coming:
