On Saturday morning, Palestinian militants with Hamas, started an invasion in Israel.
The group attacked Israel's border from all areas, land, air, and sea. This came as a surprise attack on a holiday known as Simchat Torah where Jews complete the annual cycle of reading the Torah scroll.
More than 700 people have been killed and dozens have been taken as hostages in the Gaza strip.
Fighting continues today as gun battles and rocket fire are seen all throughout Israel. However, an Israeli military official said that they have regained control in the communities around the Gaza Strip.
Israel is fighting back with multiple airstrikes occurring and nearly 560 Palestinians being killed due to the retaliation.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "This war will take time. It will be difficult. The enemy will pay an unprecedented price. Return fire of a magnitude that the enemy has not known."
