The Israel attack

While the Israeli military claimed that its air force targeted a Hamas compound in Rafah using "precise ammunition and based on precise intelligence," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted that a "tragic mistake" had occurred. According to the Gaza Health Ministry, which does not distinguish between fighters and noncombatants in its calculation, Sunday night's attack has brought the total number of Palestinian deaths in the war to over 36,000.

How the war began

The battle began on October 7 when Hamas launched an offensive on southern Israeli villages, killing around 1,200 people and taking more than 250 captives. Efforts to resolve the battle and repatriate more than 120 prisoners have been stuck for weeks, but there were some encouraging signals this weekend following meetings between Israeli and US intelligence officials, as well as Qatar's Prime Minister.
