The Israel Defense Forces has launched a new webpage where the number of fallen and wounded troops during the ongoing war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip is updated, with a breakdown of their conditions, though currently only in Hebrew.

Since October 7, the IDF says 425 soldiers have been killed, mostly during the October 7 onslaught. Another 1,593 soldiers have been wounded: 255 seriously, 446 moderately and 892 lightly.

In the ground offensive in Gaza, which was launched in late October, 97 soldiers have been killed and another 559 have been wounded. Of the soldiers injured during the ground op, 127 were seriously injured, 213 moderately and 219 lightly.

Currently, there are 40 seriously wounded soldiers, 221 moderately wounded soldiers, and 165 lightly wounded soldiers still hospitalized, according to the IDF.

Soldiers wounded in the Gaza Strip have been evacuated by the elite helicopter-borne search and rescue Unit 669.

According to the IDF, Unit 669 has carried out some 300 separate medevacs, taking around 600 soldiers to hospitals in Israel.
