Thirteen IDF soldiers were killed yesterday in heavy urban fighting in the Sajaiya neighborhood of Gaza.

The soldiers were all from the Golani unit. HY”D.

The families have been notified, but the names have not yet been released to the public.

For the past two days, the IDF has been telling civilians in Sajaiya, a Hamas stronghold, to evacuate for their own safety.

Hamas deeply embedded themselves in the Sajaiya civilian population center and was using the neighborhood for rocket attacks against Israel, and the civilian population as human shields.

10 terror tunnels were found in Sajaiya.

Throughout the day, Hamas has been milking the Sajaiya story claiming it was a massacre by the IDF against the civilian population.

The IDF was not able to release any information until, among other things, all the families of the killed soldiers were informed.

18 soldiers have been killed so far in Gaza since the ground operation began.

    That is why Israel should not listen to so called international bodies! When America was bombing Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and almost Syria from the air, did civilians not died? Obliterate any rockets spots from the borders or allow the Israelis civilians to protect themselves by returning rockets’ fire into Gaza!

  12. It is time for the world to send all Islamic people back to their home countries.

    Everywhere they are, their is murder, rape, mayhem.
    They take over communities, and towns, then drive the home country residents out of the now “Islamic territory.”
    I suggest all Western nations start doing if before they loose their home country nationality, language, and culture forever.

    Leftwing multiculturalism DOES NOT WORK.

  54. 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 missles 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!!

  55. Champ Styles says:

    G-d rest their souls, Baruch Hashem

  56. Just nuke ‘em Bibi. The scum are not worth one IDF life.

  57. In Abraham’s Bosom. Rest in Peace.
