The Israeli occupation army has admitted that three of its soldiers were killed in ongoing aggression in the Gaza Strip. This news comes as the death toll among Israeli troops continues to rise, reaching over 400 since October 7.
Under the permission to publish clause, an Israeli Army spokesman confirmed that the three soldiers were killed in separate incidents on Sunday. One of the deceased soldiers was Qualified Reserve Neria, a combat poet belonging to the 6655th Battalion, 55th Brigade. He lost his life in the center of the Gaza Strip.
In addition, Reserve Corporal Ben Zusman, a fighter in the 601st Battalion, 401st Brigade, was also tragically killed on Sunday in the northern Gaza Strip. The third soldier killed was Corporal Benjamin Yehoshua Needham, a fighter in the 601st Battalion, 401st Brigade, Combat Engineer Corps. He lost his life in the same area.
The Israeli Army spokesman also revealed that a fourth soldier from the 601st Battalion, 401st Brigade, Combat Engineering Corps, sustained serious injuries in clashes in the northern Gaza Strip.
Sunday’s casualties add to the growing death toll among Israeli occupation soldiers. On Saturday, it was permitted to announce that Army Colonel Assaf Hamami, commander of the Southern Brigade of the Gaza Division, was killed on October 7. His body remains in the hands of resistance fighters in the Gaza Strip.
Since the start of the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operation, the Israeli occupation army has acknowledged the deaths of 398 soldiers. With the latest casualties, the death toll among Israeli forces now stands at 401.
While the occupation army has not disclosed the full extent of its human losses, Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” recently reported that it obtained a statement from the army regarding the number of soldiers injured in battles with Gaza’s resistance. The report indicated that around 1,000 soldiers have been wounded since the beginning of the war.
The Israeli army has been tight-lipped about providing specific details about the wounded soldiers, withholding information from hospitals as well. This lack of transparency raises concerns about the true scale of the casualties suffered by the Israeli occupation forces.
