The war is taking a toll on IDF soldiers as the total lost during the Gaza ground operation reaches 129, but soldiers have uncovered major terror tunnels and have destroyed many terrorist weapons, reports The Times of Israel:

IDF troops continued their intense battles against Hamas in the heart of Gaza on Monday, as Israel allowed the expansion of the amount and types of humanitarian aid entering the Strip.

The military said it had taken full control of Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza, arresting Hamas gunmen as its forces advanced in the Shejaiya neighborhood of Gaza City.

Two IDF soldiers were killed Monday fighting in Gaza, the military announced, bringing the toll of troops slain during its ground offensive against Hamas to 129…

Soldiers eliminated “many terrorists” during the operation in the city, destroyed their weapons depots, rocket launchers, underground command centers, and “significant” tunnels,” the IDF said, capturing all of the Beit Hanoun battalion’s main compounds and strongholds.
