The military and strategic expert, Major General Fayez Al-Duwairi, said that the speed of the response of the resistance elements in the northern Gaza Strip to the movement of Israeli military vehicles - on the fifth day of the temporary truce - means vigilance and monitoring any hostile movements, and pointed out that the announcement of the occupation army that there are a thousand casualties in its ranks confirms the ferocity of the fighting, despite questioning the announced figures.

In his military analysis of Al-Jazeera, Al-Duwairi explained that violations during the ceasefire are possible, suggesting that Israeli vehicles have moved forward, which means that they may lead to something.

He pointed out that the al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), dealt with this breach cautiously and not with an escalation, to send a message to the occupation army that "if you return, we will return."

He pointed out that the redeployment of vehicles was in open areas with low urban density, because they become an easy target in densely populated areas.

Losses of the occupation army

As for the announcement of 10,10 casualties among Israeli army officers and soldiers since the start of the war on Gaza, the military expert believes that the occupation army used to disclose <>% of the total casualties between dead and wounded, while revealing the rest in multiple circumstances, "which practically means that there are <>,<> injuries among its ranks."

He pointed out that according to his personal estimates, based on the Qassam attacks, the videos broadcast and the information of Israeli journalists, he expected that there would be 11,3 dead and wounded in the ranks of the Israeli army in all operations, including <>,<> killed and wounded inside military vehicles.

He pointed out that these figures reflect the nature of the fighting that took place in the ground battles, and the Qassam videos gave an impression of the intensity of the battles, pointing out that the ratio of wounded to dead in conventional wars is estimated at 3 to 1, but it rises when talking about fighting from zero distance and decreases when talking about guerrilla warfare.

Based on these figures, Al-Duwairi says that there are 350 dead and a thousand wounded in the ranks of the occupation army, based on the new announcement of casualties, while stressing that these numbers will be doubled, but at different intervals and in different incidents.

He stressed that the morale of the occupation army is deteriorating, ruling out reviewing military plans as much as selecting the appropriate elements to fight after conducting a medical and military assessment, and excluding those who have psychological trauma following the dismissal of a combat battalion commander and his deputy after their forces fled the battles in Gaza.
