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.
