5 Israeli Soldiers Killed, 7 Injured In Gaza

At least five Israeli soldiers were reportedly killed and seven others injured by the errant Israeli tank fire in the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip.

New Telegraph gathered that the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) made this known in a statement issued on Thursday, May 16.

The casualties were with a force that entered Gaza City and seized buildings as part of a resumed attack on the refugee camp.


Two IDF tanks positioned several dozen meters away, apparently spotted a gun in a window of one of the buildings and fired two shells towards the target.

The army said it was investigating why the soldiers were misidentified as Palestinian militants.

A total of 626 soldiers have been killed in Hamas’ October 7 attack and Israel’s ensuing attacks on Gaza, according to the IDF tally.
