Israel recaptures areas near the Gaza Strip overrun by Hamas

All of Israel is under the control of the Israeli military, Fox News learned Monday morning.

Israeli forces recaptured areas near the Gaza Strip that had been overrun in a Hamas mass-infiltration over the weekend, Reuters reported. The Israeli Defense Force re-established control of communities but isolated clashes remain throughout the country, a military spokesperson said on Monday. 

Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone, a former senior advisor to David Friedman, spoke to Fox News Monday morning from a bomb shelter, where he confirmed the IDF had recaptured the occupied areas.

 

The major assault has also included Hamas militants firing approximately 1,500 rockets into Israel.

Hamas attacks on Israel have impacted cities near the Gaza Strip including Netiv Haasara, Kfar Aza, Nahal Oz, Sderot, Kibbutz Be’eri, Ofakim, Kissufim, Kerem Shalom and others.
