How Hamas’ attack on festival in Israel unfolded


Hamas fighters killed over 260 people at a music festival in Israel on Saturday, October 7. Le Monde has analyzed and verified the images shot on site to reconstruct this violent attack. The number of Hamas attackers and their weaponry quickly overwhelmed the event’s security and police forces. The festival participants killed represent almost a quarter of the victims of Hamas’s initial attack on Israel, including those taken hostage.
