Palestinian officials said 10,569 people had been killed as of Wednesday, 40% of them children. Israel says 33 of its soldiers have been killed, although the number is likely to be higher.
The Israeli military claimed its troops had advanced into the 'heart of Gaza City', Hamas' main bastion and the biggest city in the seaside enclave, while the resistance group said its fighters had inflicted heavy losses on invading forces.
The armed wing of Hamas said it had killed a greater number of Israeli soldiers than the military has announced, and destroyed dozens of tanks, bulldozers, and other vehicles. It also released footage of fighters firing anti-tank rockets and scoring direct hits to vehicles.
