Dozens of damaged Israeli tanks are still stuck waiting to be withdrawn from the Gaza Strip (media)

The Israeli newspaper "Maariv" quoted retired Israeli General Yitzhak Brick as saying that he spoke about what he called "total chaos" among soldiers in the Gaza Strip that is not being talked about in the media, related to equipment and logistical services.

Brik said that he had received complaints from soldiers regarding equipment malfunctions and shortages, and added that dozens of damaged tanks were still stuck waiting to be towed out of the sector.

He added that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was informed after October 7 that the army was not ready for war immediately due to the presence of soldiers who had not trained for 5 years, in addition to the shortage of equipment.

A few days ago, Israeli Army Radio revealed that Chief of Staff Herzi Halevy decided to launch internal investigations into all units into the events of last October 7, expecting the investigations to continue for 3 months and to extend to all army units.

According to the official website of the Israeli army, the losses of the Israeli occupation forces since the start of its war on Gaza amounted to 576 people, 237 of whom were killed since the beginning of the ground operation in the Gaza Strip on October 27, while about 2,962 were wounded, including 453 soldiers who were seriously injured.

The Israeli occupation is waging an aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip that has, as of Saturday, left 29,606 martyrs and 69,737 injured, most of them children and women, in addition to thousands missing under the rubble.
