Hebrew media reports higher than announced numbers of dead and wounded by Israeli army in Gaza

The Hebrew news site Ynet said on Thursday that it is clear from the data of the Israeli occupation army that doctors treated 4,200 field soldiers, while 3,350 evacuations of wounded soldiers were carried out by land and air during the war on Gaza.


Although the website said that its data was quoted from the army, the numbers it published did not match those published on the Israeli army’s website.


The website said: “According to Israeli army numbers, about 950 evacuations were conducted by helicopters, and 2,400 were evacuated by land.”


He added: "Doctors treated 4,200 wounded soldiers in the field, 80 soldiers received life-saving plasma transfusions, and 550 were treated with an arterial tourniquet to stop blood loss."


According to the website, "a quarter of the injuries were considered serious."


"At the height of the fighting, an average of 60 wounded soldiers were evacuated per day, and since the offensive subsided, there has been an average of 20 wounded per week, many of whom have returned to their units," Went noted.


He continued: "Most of the injuries were on exposed parts of the body, including the extremities, lower parts of the head and neck, and along the sides of the body."


The website stated, "Many of the deaths were caused by shrapnel injuries to the ribs, which are not protected by the vests used by the IDF."


He also said that "about 300 soldiers have been killed since the start of the ground offensive in Gaza, more than 40 of whom were paramedics, medics and doctors who died while trying to save the lives of others amid the fighting."


These numbers are higher than those published by the Israeli army on its official account, which indicate that 3,210 officers and soldiers have been injured since the beginning of the war on October 7, 2023, including 1,560 since the beginning of the ground war on the 17th of the same month.


According to data published on the Israeli army’s account, 604 officers and soldiers have been killed since the beginning of the war, including 260 killed in ground battles in the Gaza Strip.
