[Newtalk新聞] On October 7, Hamas launched a raid on a music festival in the southern Israeli village of Re’im, killing and holding hundreds of civilians in attendance, triggering a broader exchange of fire between the two sides that has continued to this day. . The investigation into this incident of global concern is ongoing, and according to the first Israeli police report, there are indications that Hamas militants had prior knowledge of the event or were unaware of it and decided to attack the target on the spot.
According to the latest statistics from health authorities in the Gaza Strip, more than 12,000 Palestinians have been killed in retaliatory ground and air offensives launched by Israel. The figures released by the unit were recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). On the other hand, Israel’s original reported death toll in the country of about 1,400 people was recently revised down to about 1,200. Officials revealed that some of the remains identified as Israelis were actually Hamas militants.
The Israeli left-wing media Haaretz reported that according to the Israeli police’s first report on the attack on the Supernova Sukkot Gathering event, Hamas militants originally planned to attack other nearby villages. They discovered the festival from the air and via drone as they parachuted into Israel.
Israeli authorities said that approximately 4,400 people attended the event that day. Hamas has repeatedly breached Israel’s high-security barrier, including radar systems and ground sensors, for more than a month and attacked military posts and villages in the south, killing 1,200 people, mostly civilians.
