The Hamas resistance movement's attack killed eight Israeli soldiers on Saturday.

Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the resistance movement, said they executed ‘compound ambush against invading enemy vehicles in Saudi neighborhood in Tal al-Sultan, west of Rafah’.

According to the Israeli regime’s army data, the number of soldiers killed since the beginning of the genocidal war on Gaza on Oct. 7 has risen to 658, including 306 in the ground battles that began on Oct. 27.

Meanwhile, in Gaza City, in the north of the Gaza Strip, at least 28 Palestinians were killed in Israeli bombings of three homes.

At least 37,296 people have been killed and 85,197 wounded in Israel’s war on Gaza since October 7.  

More than eight months into the Israeli onslaught, vast tracts of Gaza lay in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water, and medicine.
