BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Four Israeli soldiers were killed after a mortar strike from Gaza hit a military site in Eshkol in southern Israel on Monday.

Earlier reports in Israeli media had said that the four killed were Israeli civilians, but on Monday evening the military confirmed that the attack had hit a military contingent.

The military confirmed that 48 soldiers have been killed in combat since the beginning of the ground assault, including five on Monday alone.

The fifth soldier was killed in combat in Khan Younis.

More than 1,050 Palestinians -- the vast majority civilians -- have been killed during the 21-day Israeli assault on Gaza.

Both sides are losing precious human lives. Please stop the fighting and killing. This is just senseless.

The victims seem to have come down to Eshkol to enjoy the show. From the Jerusalem Post: 'None of those killed or hurt in the projectile attack were Eshkol residents, said a spokeswoman for the regional council... The head of the Eshkol Regional Council Haim Yellin urged civilians against visiting soldiers in the area..." So maybe they came down to enjoy Palestinian pain -- and got a little of their own to take home with them.

To Collin: Don't be a wise-ass. Read the news. They were all IDF regulars (7th Armor Brigade)

We just wish the Resistance could do as well in dispatching the enemy Israeli terrorists as they are in killing Palestinian civilians. I speak for millions in the Zionist controlled United States and our prayers are with the Resistance and all the Palestinian people.

It's such a tragedy when nice Jewish boys are killed while committing mass murder.
