Hamas released a video showing their political leadership praying to thank their god for the successful deadly attack on Israeli civilians, police, and military.
At least 250 people in Israel have been killed and 1,500 wounded in the Hamas militant group's incursion in southern Israel, according to Magen David Adom, Israel's national emergency services agency said Saturday night, making it the deadliest attack in Israel in decades. Video showed bodies of Israeli civilians scattered on streets.
In an assault of startling breadth, Hamas gunmen rolled into as many as 22 locations outside the Gaza Strip, including towns and other communities as far as 15 miles from the Gaza border. In some places, they gunned down civilians and soldiers as Israel's military scrambled to muster a response.
