The Israeli armed forces say they have "eliminated" around 9,000 terrorists from the Islamist Hamas and other terrorist groups in the Gaza war so far. In addition, there are more than 50 company commanders, 19 battalion and two brigade commanders from Hamas, according to an army data list published on the occasion of the 100th day of the war. The war was triggered by the terrorist attack on Israel by Hamas and other extremist groups on October 7th.
More than 1,200 people were killed and more than 240 others were taken hostage in the Gaza Strip. Israel reportedly killed around 1,000 of the terrorists on Israeli soil and responded to their unprecedented attack with massive air strikes and a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip. According to the Hamas-controlled health authority, almost 24,000 people have now been killed there. This number, which cannot be independently verified, does not distinguish between fighters and civilians.
