How do Israelis and opponents view the mounting IDF casualties since the October 7 Massacre?

 The Israeli people and opposition have shown a range of reactions to the rising IDF fatalities since the start of the October 7 Massacre.

 The Israeli society, which is heavily militarized, has a lower tolerance for the losses of its people, and the lack of tangible results from the deaths of their soldiers has been a source of frustration

The opposition, particularly far-right ministers, have called for control of Gaza and settlements in response to the rising IDF fatalities

 However, about two-thirds (66%) of Israelis say they do not think Israel should agree to US demands to shift to a phase of the war with reduced heavy bombing in populous areas

The Israeli government's response to the fatalities has been to continue its military operations. This includes launching attacks on targets in Syria and Lebanon, as part of its ongoing campaign against opposing militaries and armed forces in the Middle East

In conclusion, the rising IDF fatalities have led to a mix of support for the war, frustration at the military and intelligence failures, calls for control of Gaza and settlements by the opposition, and continued military operations by the Israeli government.
