Israeli Chief of the General Staff, Herzi Halevi, expressed deep sorrow on Tuesday (January 23) over the loss of 21 soldiers in a single explosion in Gaza.

Following a visit to the blast site and discussions with on-site commanders, Halevi emphasized the need for a thorough investigation to prevent such incidents from happening again. All 21 soldiers were reservists, and Halevi acknowledged their immense respect and appreciation for their voluntary service, determination, and readiness.

The soldiers lost their lives when two buildings they had mined for demolition exploded after militants attacked a nearby tank.
