The Israeli Army Announces The Total Deaths Since October 7


On 23 of January, following its heaviest loss in one day, the Israeli army revealed the total number of its own deaths since last October 7, first in the Hamas attack, and then in its ground operations inside the Gaza Strip.

Avichay Adraee, spokesman for the Israeli army, revealed the details of the deaths of 21 reserve soldiers in a missile explosion that targeted a tank and a building that the army booby-trapped in preparation for its demolition in the southern Gaza Strip.

He stated that according to the information available to us, at approximately 4 pm on 22nd January, it appears that an RPG missile was fired at a tank that was fired at a tank that was guarding the force that operated in the central area of the Gaza Strip. At the same time, an explosion occurred in two buildings consisting "Two floors collapsed, while most of the force's members were inside and next to them. Apparently, the two buildings exploded as a result of the explosive devices that our forces planted in them."

The army said that the incident apparently occurred when a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at a tank guarding forces operating inside Gaza, 600 metres from the border fence with Israel.

An official statement confirmed that the number of Israeli army deaths since the war on October 7 reached 556, including 221 killed in the ground operation inside Gaza that began in late October.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged on Tuesday 23 of January that Israel would not stop fighting in Gaza until it achieved “clear victory,” after it suffered the largest number of losses in one day in the Strip.

24 Israeli soldiers were killed on Monday 22 of January, as fighting intensified in the southern and central Gaza Strip, where Israel is attacking the remaining strongholds of Hamas and areas near the border.

21 soldiers were killed in one of those border areas when an explosion occurred in a building and it collapsed.

Netanyahu said that Israel went through one of its most difficult days in the war, and Defense Minister Yoav Galant expressed his condolences to the families of those killed on "this difficult and stressful morning that Israel will not back down."

He added, "This war will determine the future of Israel for decades to come, and the fall of soldiers is necessary to achieve the goals of the war."

In response to the attack, Israel pledged to "eliminate" Hamas, and has since carried out a bombing campaign followed by ground operations since October 27, resulting in more than 25,000 deaths, most of them women and children, according to the Gaza Strip's Ministry of Health.
