The Defense Ministry rehabilitation center says it has received some 9,250 soldiers since the beginning of the war which began on October 7, including those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

According to the ministry, some 3,600, or 21 percent, of those received by the rehab center amid the war are suffering from PTSD.

Among the 9,250, around 70% are reservists.

The ministry expects 14,000 more wounded soldiers by the end of the year, as fighting continues in the Gaza Strip and on other fronts.
