Palestinian resistance groups announce clashes in multiple axes of Gaza City and north departmentThe Israeli army admitted that two soldiers were killed and five others were injured in the ongoing fighting.
As a result, the total recognized death toll since Israel began its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip on October 27 has risen to 70, while Palestinian resistance groups say the actual damage caused by the occupation is far greater than that.
The death toll among Israeli troops has increased over the past few days as fighting with resistance groups intensified in multiple war zones.
At the same time, Israel’s “Haaretz” quoted military sources as saying that more than 10,000 Israeli soldiers are currently deployed in the Gaza Strip to participate in the war.
The troops are mainly stationed in the Al-Zaytoun and Jabalia neighborhoods of Gaza City, the newspaper reported.
According to Haaretz, since the start of the Israeli ground attack, there have been a number of incidents in which Israeli troops were killed by friendly fire.
The military said it was investigating the incidents to draw lessons for the future.
