Hamas fighters kill dozens of Israeli soldiers


Al-Qassam Brigades, which is the military wing of Hamas, says Palestinian resistance fighters have killed dozens of Israeli soldiers over the past 24 hours.

The Qassam Brigades said on Wednesday that nearly 20 Israeli soldiers were trapped at a house where 12 barrels of improvised explosive devices had been planted.

Separately, the resistance fighters also killed over a dozen Israeli soldiers in a bomb attack east of Khan Yunis.

This is while Israeli media say an unspecified number of soldiers have been taken to hospital and that surgeons have been summoned to help treat the injured.

Hamas has also released the footage of an infiltration operation that left several Israeli soldiers killed on Monday. The Israeli military has confirmed that at least five soldiers were killed in the attack that occurred at Kibbutz Nahal Oz.

Israeli military says it has so far lost at least 53 of its troops in clashes with Palestinian resistance fighters.

Latest figures show that over 140 Israeli soldiers have been hospitalized with combat injuries. Nearly a dozen of them are reportedly in critical condition.

Hamas says Palestinian resistance fighters have killed over 100 Israeli soldiers over the past 23 days.

This is seen as the heaviest loss of life for the Israeli military in years.

Israel has kept tight reins on media outlets with regards to the exact number of Israeli soldiers captured or killed during its ongoing assault on the besieged coastal enclave.

The rising death toll of Israeli forces during the ongoing assault on Gaza Strip has prompted growing opposition to the war among the Israeli public.
