Will someone knowledgeable
please help me here.

Today a BBC news reporter said
Hamas and Israel are close
to waging all out war.

Hamas has rocks and rockets that don’t appear to kill
many Israelis. Israelis have jet planes, helicopters,
tanks, artillery, bulldozers, foot soldiers,
drones and U.S. support.

So the question I have is
how do we define all out war?
