Seven more Israeli soldiers were killed in Gaza, bringing the total death toll of soldiers in fighting there to 27.

Also Monday, two terrorist cells entered southern Israel via a tunnel from the Gaza Strip, injuring some Israeli troops, according to Haaretz.

At least 130 Palestinians have been killed since Israel began its ground incursion late last week, Haaretz reported.

The Palestinian death toll rose to more than 500 since the Israeli military launched Operation Protective Edge two weeks ago, according to the Washington Post.
