Israeli Death Tolls for the October 7, 2023 Palestinian Attack on Israel (Fourth Update)

As you can see, I’m still working on this. One thing is for sure: the Palestinians killed a lot of people and committed a lot of horrific acts and horrendous war crimes during this attack. But Israel appears to have killed even more of their own civilians while fighting back. Some of this was simply confusion or crossfire but a certain amount of it was also the invocation of the Hannibal Doctrine. An awful lot of this is still very much up in the air. In particular, the Palestinian may have killed more and Israel may have killed fewer than my current figures.

We may never get to the bottom of this to where we can get a true estimate of  just who killed who.

Let’s go through the list:

1,147 Israelis, soldiers and civilians, killed on 10-7.

One thought on “Israeli Death Tolls for the October 7, 2023 Palestinian Attack on Israel (Fourth Update)”

  1. One Israeli said people are more mature in Israel from serving in the military. It likely does change the tone.

    Killing your own civilians seems insane. A lot of stuff in Ukraine was cringe like that. I thought Israel was better.
