This Is Not an “Ordinary” Israel–Hamas Conflict

On October 7, Hamas launched a surprise air, land, and sea attack on Israel during Sukkot celebrations.

The Israeli-Hamas conflict continues, with significant casualties on both sides and reports of hostages taken.

Past Israel-Hamas conflicts often ended quickly, mediated by Egypt, but the current war's outcome is uncertain.

Recent Hamas attack surpasses prior conflicts, PM Netanyahu's resolve hints at a prolonged war.

Iran's support to Hamas in stockpiling weapons implies a potentially more brutal and prolonged conflict.

Hamas' attack stems from ongoing issues, but skepticism is needed considering past lopsided outcomes.

Israel maintains a substantial military advantage over Hamas, despite arms influx, backed by the US.

Political dynamics shifted, US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia negotiate normalization and security agreements.
