The Israeli military admits to a new batch of injuries, 28 of whom fell in unspecified locations.

Israeli media outlets have circulated footage of several military helicopters transporting casualties from the Gaza Strip to hospitals in occupied Palestine, in what has been described as an "unusual" incident on Friday morning.

Concurrently, Israeli military reports have revealed that 62 Israeli occupation troops have been wounded in a period ranging from March 21 to March 28, pushing the total number of injuries among occupation forces to 3,160.

In the last updated form of Israeli troops killed since October 7, 2023, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) admitted to 597 deaths among its members. The total number of casualties (deaths and injuries) admitted by Israeli authorities has reached 3,757.

Since the Israeli occupation launched its ground invasion into the Gaza Strip, 1,523 soldiers and officers have been injured.

Another 28 soldiers and officers were injured last week in unspecified areas of engagement, which may be linked to the operations of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon - Hezbollah.

Israeli media outlets pointed out that the number of casualties equates to an entire brigade of the Israeli military, which consists of 11 regular and active brigades. The extreme reduction in manpower has had clear effects on the Israeli military's structure, as officials have called for at least 14,500 new recruits. The events have also forced further dependence on reserve brigades, costing the Israeli occupation treasury large sums to maintain.

It is worth noting that thousands of casualties among Israeli troops go unreported when treated in field hospitals.

Israelis attacks on Gaza's hospitals met with fierce Resistance

Most recently, Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades said that its fighters launched a thermobaric shell toward an Israeli force that had taken position in a building near the Nasser Medical Complex in the city of Khan Younis.

The Military Media confirmed that the attack led to casualties among the force's members, which was followed by airborne evacuations via a military helicopter.
