Seven Israeli soldiers, including a battalion commander, have been killed in a single incident in northern Gaza, Israel’s military said on Tuesday.
Lt. Col. Tomer Grinberg, commander of the 13th battalion of the Golani Brigade, was among those killed, it said.
Details of the incident, which marks one of the biggest losses of life for Israeli forces during their ongoing offensive in the enclave, were not immediately made public.
Another soldier was killed in a separate incident in Gaza Tuesday, bringing the number of Israeli troops killed in the strip to 112, the military said.
At least 18,412 people have been killed in Gaza during Israeli attacks since October 7, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in the enclave said Tuesday.
