After landing awkwardly, Diego Costa was taken off on a stretcher during Wolverhampton Wanderers’ match against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The 34-year-old Spanish striker jumped with Tottenham’s Oliver Skipp, but his landing resulted in what appeared to be a major knee injury.
After 27 minutes of play, Costa was replaced on the pitch by Raul Jiminez.

His possible long-term absence is another setback for Julen Lopetegui’s side, which has struggled to score goals this season. At Molineux, the first half ended scoreless.

Wolves’ difficulties were temporarily forgotten, however, after Adama Traore’s scissor kick volley eight minutes from time sealed a 1-0 triumph over Spurs.

Israel’s Rear Admiral Hagari confirmed on Sunday night that one soldier was killed and three others wounded during the raid in the Khan Younis area of Gaza.

The raid was launched as part of efforts to rescue the more than 200 hostages abducted in the October 7 Hamas attack, which also saw more than 1,400 people killed in Israel by gunmen from the terrorist group.

Earlier, Hamas said it had fought with Israeli forces near Khan Younis in southern Gaza, destroying a tank and two bulldozers in the battle.

The IDF later confirmed the death of the soldier and injuries to three more, saying the casualties were caused by an anti-tank missile.

‘An IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldier was killed, one was moderately injured, and two were lightly injured as a result of an anti-tank missile launched toward an IDF tank and an engineering vehicle,’ the military said.

It said the purpose of the raid was to locate Hamas hostages in the Khan Younis area and to ‘thwart terrorist infrastructure’.

As the bombardment has continued, pressure has intensified on Israel to negotiate the release of Hamas’s captives, with families pleading with officials to secure the freedom of their loved ones ahead of the imminent ground invasion.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops have been conducting raids across the border, which the military says are meant to clear the area and gather intelligence about missing people and captives being held by terrorist group Hamas in the enclave.

The news of the soldier’s death came as dozens of Palestinians were killed on Sunday night and several others were wounded in an Israeli air strike on the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza strip.

Thirty bodies, most of them women and children, have been recovered from the rubble of bombed buildings in the camp, the civil defence unit there told Al Jazeera.

At least 27 people suffered injuries, with hospitals saying they are struggling to treat the wounded due to ‘an acute shortage of medicines and medical equipment’.

Local sources also claimed IDF strikes hit near a Gaza hospital.

The Jabalia refugee camp has been hit three times previously since Israel launched its campaign of air strikes in response to Hamas’s October 7 raid that has killed more than 1,400 people in the Jewish state.

Most recently, a strike on Thursday there killed at least 18 people.

Online footage posted on Sunday, said to be captured in the aftermath of the strike, showed people running into a hospital carrying injured children.

Many were covered in dust and rubble, and looked to be in shock.

MailOnline was not immediately able to verify the footage.

A report from Gazan news sources said that more than 400 people had been killed in Israeli air strikes in the last 24 hours, which Palestinian media described as the ‘heaviest bombardment’ since the October 7 Hamas attack

Gaza’s Health Ministry said 266 Palestinians, including 117 children, had been killed by Israeli air strikes in the past 24 hours in the enclave, to which Israel laid ‘total siege’ after the deadly mass infiltration into Israel by Hamas gunmen.

Health authorities in Gaza say at least 4,600 people have been killed in total, with over a million of the densely populated enclave’s 2.3 million people displaced.
