Israeli military cemeteries: We receive a dead soldier every hour
Israeli media report, citing a military cemetery director, that 50 soldiers have been buried in the past 48 hours on "Mount Herzl" alone.
Israeli military cemetery directors revealed to Israeli media on Sunday that they are burying large numbers of Israeli soldiers killed, especially after the ground invasion of Gaza.
David Orin Baruch, the director of the "Mount Herzl" cemetery, west of occupied al-Quds, said they were organizing a burial every hour.

He noted that in the past 48 hours, a huge number of graves have been opened, and "only on Mount Herzl, we have buried about 50 dead."
Yael Yamin, the director of the "Kiryat Shaul" military cemetery, explained that they are going through stressful times.
It is worth noting that the names of the dead soldiers are not announced until the occupation army allows it.
Israeli authorities are repeatedly accused of underreporting their casualties, especially after the Gaza ground invasion.
In Gaza, "Israel" claims that around 53 soldiers have been killed since the start of the ground invasion, but Hamas repeatedly challenges "Israel" to disclose the actual number of its casualties, saying that they are much more than officially announced.
Today, the Israeli army announced on Sunday that 380 soldiers had been killed since October 7.
Meanwhile, the IOF spokesperson explained that while the IOF "expanded the ground operation in Gaza," it remained a complex endeavor.
