Israeli Channel 12 said on Monday that 540 Israeli soldiers have been accidentally injured since ground fighting began in the Gaza Strip on October 27, 2023.
The channel said its information was based on Israeli military data, without further details.

According to Israeli military figures, 562 soldiers have been killed since the start of the war on October 7, including 225 since the start of ground fighting on October 27.
A spokesman for the Israeli occupation forces told US channel NBC last month that the rate of soldiers killed in friendly fire is appalling, and said lessons were being learned to reduce such horrific incidents, as he Was.
“The number of soldiers killed by friendly fire in the Gaza battle represents one-fifth of the number of soldiers killed during ground operations,” Israeli Army Radio said.
