NLA Losses

A total of 1,263 NLA combatants were martyred, are missing, or were captured and their fates not yet known.

NLA combatants were wounded in the Eternal Light operation, eleven of whom eventually died. In the same period, 994 combatants who had suffered minor injuries fully recovered and returned to their duties in various units of the National Liberation Army. A number of others are also expected to fully recover and resume their duties in the coming days and weeks.

The NLA's material losses in the Eternal Light operation amounted to 612 vehicles of various makes, 72 tanks and armored personnel carriers, twenty-one 122mm guns, and fifty-one 106mm rifles, half of which were non-mobile. Many of these rifles, guns, and tanks were no longer functional due to excessive use in four days of heavy, incessant battle.
