The ambassador admitted that more than four Russians were killed in Israel


Russian Ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov admitted that the real number of dead and missing Russians significantly exceeds the confirmed data. He stated this during a Valdai Club discussion on the aggravation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

“In fact, taking into account the scale of civilian casualties and wounded, we assume that there are, of course, much more of them. But what I can operate with is data confirmed and verified with the Israeli side,” he said (quote according to RIA Novosti).

The Russian Embassy has now confirmed the deaths of four Russians. In addition, six people are known to be missing.

On the morning of October 7, the Palestinian group Hamas began military operations against Israel. The militants attacked the army’s border units and freely entered Israeli populated areas, where they captured an unknown number of hostages, both military and civilian. The Israeli Army (IDF) responded by launching Operation Iron Swords, and the Israeli government announced that the country had entered a state of war.

According to the latest data, more than 2,000 people have died as a result of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. In particular, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, more than 1,050 people were killed, and more than 5,000 were injured. On the Israeli side, more than 1,200 people were killed and over 3,400 more were injured.
