8 Israeli soldiers killed in southern Gaza

By The Associated Press on June 15, 2024.

JERUSALEM (AP) – Israel’s military said Saturday that eight soldiers were killed in southern Gaza in the deadliest attack in months.

Only one of the dead troops was identified by the army. No further information was immediately available.

The deaths will likely fuel calls for a cease-fire and heighten Israeli public anger over ultra-Orthodox exemptions from the military.
