The Israeli occupation army admitted the killing of five soldiers Tuesday morning, during its ground aggression against the Gaza Strip, Al-Jazeera reported.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the Israeli army announced the killing of an officer and two soldiers in the ongoing battles with the Palestinian Resistance in the Gaza Strip, noting that an officer and three soldiers were seriously injured.

It was later announced that two other soldiers were killed during battles with the Resistance in Gaza, and that another soldier from the Duvdevan unit was wounded in the ongoing clashes. 

On Monday, the Israeli army admitted that three of its soldiers were killed and a fourth was seriously injured in battles in the north and center of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Palestinians have been killed by Israeli airstrikes across various areas of Gaza since Friday morning, as Israel resumed its aggression after a seven-day truce, the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said in a statement.

A four-day truce began on Friday, November 24, was extended twice, and ended on Friday, December 1, at 7 am local time today.

Since October 7, over 15,899 Palestinians, including over 6,200 children and more than 4,000 women were killed, with another 41,316 wounded, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza.
