@Ingking – your rights are not affected by the war for the better or the worse. However, BA changed its policy for rebooking onto El Al on 7 December. Your flight was probably cancelled a while ago as they were allowing all bookings up to 14 Jan to be rebooked onto LY for travel up to 31 Mar. LY no longer wishes to or cannot re-accommodate flights from other carriers so options are now rather tricky.

While in theory you could book onto LY and reclaim the cost, a successful claim may depend on whether you chose not to avail yourself of options that were originally offered or available so missed the boat. In view of the current security situation and very limited options now available, it’s quite possible that BA’s approach will be considered reasonable such that you won’t get reimbursed.
