Twenty-six IDF soldiers were wounded today in fighting in the Gaza Strip, including a commander from the Golani Brigade who was lightly wounded. Four soldiers were transferred to Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv, two who were lightly wounded and two listed in moderate condition. At Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, five soldiers were listed in light to moderate condition.

At the same time, Army Radio said that ferocious battles have been raging in Gaza since this morning (Sunday) between the IDF and Hamas. Last night the IDF destroyed two terror tunnels and wounded dozens of Hamas members. IDF officials reported that at least 30 enemy soldiers were killed in the fighting.

The army also said the Windbreaker tank defense system has proven itself during the current engagement. At least four tanks of senior commanders were saved by the Windbreaker system – a technological accomplishment no less significant than the Iron Dome missile defense system, Army Radio reported.

  9. Sam Bromley says:

    God is on the side of the Israelis!!! Hamas has sent over 1,705 rockets with the intent of murdering children by the 1,000s. They are just poor shots. Israel protects itself with precision firing of missiles at those firing these rockets making sure they hit their target and not kill civilians! FACT! The only problem is, these Hamas cowards strap children onto their backs and place their rockets in the homes of children for the exact purpose for liberals to blame Israel for killing babies! FACT! Israel is saving children by wiping Hamas off the face of the earth!!!!!!!!!!! ISRAEL, GOD CHOSEN PEOPLE!!
