Live updates: Netanyahu warns of long war with Hamas; Hezbollah and Israel trade fire


The Israel Defense Forces launched fresh strikes on Gaza early Sunday local time as violence in the region continued overnight, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warning of a long and difficult war ahead. Fears of a wider regional conflict escalated with Hezbollah, Lebanon’s militant group and largest political party, claiming responsibility for attacks on three targets within the Israeli-controlled Shebaa Farms area “in solidarity” with Hamas. Saturday’s land, air and sea attacks by Hamas — which took Israel’s vaunted security agencies by surprise — came after months of rising tensions over Israeli occupation and violence at the al-Aqsa Mosque, a disputed holy site in Jerusalem. At least 250 people have been killed in Israel, while the number of deaths in Gaza stands at 313, according to local authorities.
