Their sacrifice is well worth it. They are fighting uncivilized degenerates. Israel must be very, very proud of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Go Israel. Kill hamas goons.

Base on population size..Israel’s loss of 27 soldiers in about a week is the equivalent of the US losing some 1,000 troops. That’s almost a REGIMENT being wiped out...Remember that we lost some 3,500 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003.

The price paid, means that Israel is not going to just retreat from Gaza like it did before.

The public will want to make sure these sacrifices were worth something.
