Israeli Army Demobilizes Brigades

The Israeli army has decided to demobilize several combat brigades operating in the Gaza Strip. This includes reserve brigades and training brigades. The demobilized brigades will now focus on helping revive the Israeli economy.

Israeli Soldiers Injured

During the past 24 hours, 13 Israeli soldiers were injured. Some of them were transported from the Gaza Strip to Israeli hospitals for treatment. Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon has treated over 3,500 wounded since October 7.

Investigation and Responsibility

Senior reserve officers have called for an immediate investigation into the events of October 7. Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen believes that the government should take responsibility for the attack and form an investigation committee. Cohen emphasizes that restoring security is the priority before discussing settlement in the Gaza Strip.

Encouraging Emigration from Gaza

Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich suggests encouraging residents of Gaza to emigrate due to the hardships and poverty they face. Smotrich believes that Gaza has the potential to become a prosperous place if Israelis return and develop it.

Resistance Operations

The military wings of the Islamic Jihad Movement and Hamas continue to target Israeli forces. They have blown up tunnels, sniped soldiers, and targeted Israeli vehicles. The resistance groups are determined to defend Gaza until the Israeli aggression stops and forces withdraw completely.

Victim Toll

According to the Government Information Office in Gaza, there have been 1,825 Israeli massacres, 28,822 martyrs and missing persons (including 9,100 children), and 56,451 infected individuals during the 86 days of Israeli aggression. The number of displaced people has reached 1.8 million.
