A video clip showed a state of panic, fear, and mass flight among hundreds of settlers, who were attending a natural party near Kibbutz Ra'im, near the Gaza Strip.
The Israelis began to flee and run in the desert after they spotted drones and missiles starting to fall from the Gaza Strip as part of the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation launched by Hamas.
Reports said that the missiles were quickly followed by gunfire into the crowd, even as hundreds of concertgoers tried to flee the site.
This morning, the Palestinian resistance launched hundreds of rockets from the Gaza Strip towards the surrounding settlements, and the rockets reached Tel Aviv.
The Commander-in-Chief of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas movement announced the start of Operation “Al-Aqsa Flood,” revealing that 5,000 rockets were launched within half an hour.
At least 300 Israelis have been confirmed killed and over 1,400 wounded by Saturday evening.
A report claimed at least one death, and Israeli media reported dozens of wounded with many still hiding from further potential gunmen, at the desert site near Kibbutz Re’im in the western Negev where thousands were taking part in the event.
