JERUSALEM (AA) – The Israeli army said Thursday that 22 soldiers had been injured in clashes in the last 24 hours.

A military statement said the toll included 16 soldiers, who were injured in the occupied West Bank. It, however, did not provide any details where the other soldiers were wounded.

The army said early Thursday that one soldier was killed and 16 others were injured during a military raid in Jenin in the northern West Bank.

Military figures show that at least 667 soldiers have been killed and 3,944 others injured since the outbreak of the conflict in the Gaza Strip on Oct. 7, 2023.

Flouting a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire, Israel has faced international condemnation amid its continued brutal offensive on Gaza since an Oct. 7, 2023 attack by Palestinian group Hamas.

More than 37,700 Palestinians have since been killed in Gaza, most of them women and children, and over 86,400 others injured, according to local health authorities.

Over eight months into the Israeli war, vast tracts of Gaza lie in ruins amid a crippling blockade of food, clean water and medicine.

Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice, whose latest ruling ordered Tel Aviv to immediately halt its military operation in the southern city of Rafah, where over a million Palestinians had sought refuge from the war before it was invaded on May 6.
