Operation Swords of Iron: Standing Strong for Israel 

On the morning of Saturday, 7th October, the State of Israel was shaken to the core, when Hamas terrorists waged an unprecedented and barbaric onslaught against our people. 

Children, babies, women, the elderly, and entire families were massacred in the most unimaginably evil ways, with almost 12,500 rockets raining down upon the country subsequently. At least 1,200 people were murdered on October 7th, with over 10,335 injured since, and 240 having been taken hostage. Following the release of some of the hostages, at least another 135 people are being held in captivity, including children and women.

Each one of these deprived acts by Hamas is an undisputed war crime and a violation of every imaginable norm of international law.

Today, although we are a nation in mourning, grieving for the loss of our loved ones, we remain determined to share the truth and combat misinformation, exposing the monstrous evil of Hamas and unwavering in defending and underscoring Israel's fundamental and inalienable right under international law to take whatever action necessary to defend its citizens from this wanton savagery and act of war that has been unleashed by the Hamas terror organization.

On this dedicated page, you will find up-to-date legal material, graphics, interviews, and other resources to help you ensure that the world hears the truth.

As if it wasn't enough being caught taking part in the Oct 7 massacre, now it has emerged that UNRWA has allowed its headquarters in Gaza to be used as a command control center by Hamas. Enough is enough! UNRWA has become an inseparable part of Hamas and must be defunded & disbanded immediately!
