From news coming out of Jerusalem, a report said that two Hamas sleeper cells are still present in Israel ready to spring into action if the Israeli military enters the Gaza Strip for a ground operation.

The report also underlines that in the territories of southern Israel near the Gaza Strip there are still some terrorist groups and that among the hostages taken by Hamas, in addition to Israeli civilians, there are also Asian workers.

Jerusalem Post wrote on X: "According to an unofficial report, around 750 Israelis are currently missing." Ali Shuayb, correspondent for the pro-Iranian armed party's Al Manar TV, said: "The Israeli military response to the rocket fire by the resistance was contained and studied, it focused on uninhabited agricultural and forested areas." A Hamas spokesman, Ghazi Hamad, told the BBC that his attack on Israel had received support from Iran.
