What's happening in Israel?

Israeli media, citing rescue service officials, said at least 300 people were killed and 1,500 wounded, making it the deadliest attack in Israel in decades. At least 232 people in the Gaza Strip have been killed and at least 1,700 wounded in Israeli strikes, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Reportedly, the Hamas military commander Muhammad Al-Deif called the attack ‘operation Al-Aqsa Storm’ and said that the assault on Israel was a response to attacks on women, the desecration of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and the ongoing siege of Gaza.

On the work front, Gal was last seen in the Netflix film Heart of Stone. The spy thriller, which marked the debut of Bollywood star Alia Bhatt and also starred Jamie Dornan, released on Netflix on August 11.
