Biton and Tahan were killed in battle with Hamas terrorists in Gaza on Saturday. Yahalom was killed in a car accident while on his way back from Gaza.

In addition, a soldier in Paratroopers Brigade was seriously injured in a battle in the northern Gaza Strip.

Fierce fighting continues in the Northern Gaza strip, where the IDF is working to gain control of the Zeitun, Jabalya and Sejaiya neighborhoods in eastern Gaza, which would conclude the takeover of the entire northern section of the Gaza strip. The forces are coordinating assistance from naval and air forces to destroy the terrorist posts in these regions.

IDF forces have also located several attack tunnels under the Shifa hospital, including a tunnel with a  blast-proof door which has a one-way firing position in it.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reported that Israel, the US and Hamas have agreed to a tentative deal that would free dozens of women and children held hostage in Gaza, in exchange for a five-day pause in fighting.

The release could begin within the next several days, barring last-minute hitches, said people familiar with the provisions of the agreement.
