Israel’s Operation Protective Edge entered its 19th day on Saturday, marking the ninth day of the Israel Defense Forces’ ground incursion into the Gaza Strip.

A 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire went into effect at 8 A.M., during which the IDF continued to destroy Hamas’ tunnel network. On Friday, Israel’s security cabinet rejected a proposal brought forth by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to end the fighting and begin negotiations between Israel and Hamas.

Five soldiers were killed and 35 were wounded in fighting in Gaza since Friday evening. The fallen are Staff Sgt. Guy Boyland, 21, from Ginosar; Amit Yeori, 20, from Jerusaleml Roy Peles, 21, from Tel Aviv; Avraham Grintzvaig, 21, from Petah Tikva; and Gal Bason, 21, from Holon. Since Operation Protective Edge began, 40 Israeli soldiers were killed in the Gaza Strip.
