Now the death toll of heroes lost during the ground operation in Gaza reaches 104, and fighting is so intense in Khan Younis that equipment had to be airdropped to support IDF troops on the battlefields, reports The Times of Israel:  

The Israel Defense Forces announced the death of seven more soldiers on Monday morning, six of whom were killed during fighting in the southern Gaza Strip on Sunday, bringing the toll of slain troops in the ground offensive against Hamas to 104.

The announcement was made amid ongoing heavy fighting in and around Khan Younis, a Hamas stronghold in southern Gaza, and as Gaza terror groups fired more rockets into Israel, including a midday barrage at the center of the country in which a Holon man was injured by shrapnel…

The IDF said on Monday morning that it had airdropped some seven tons of equipment to hundreds of troops of the 98th Division’s Commando Brigade who are operating in the Khan Younis area of southern Gaza.

It said that this was the first time since the Second Lebanon War in 2006 that the military has airdropped equipment to troops.
