GAZA (AL AQSA/CNN) – Sunday has been the deadliest day so far, in the Mideast conflict, with 476 Palestinians dying in the ground assault on Gaza, it was reported on Sunday.

Israel says Hamas fighters lured Israeli tanks into a field with hidden bombs.

Thirteen Israeli soldiers died Sunday.

In a televised announcement on Al Aqsa TV, the al Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obeida claimed they have captured an Israeli soldier during an operation early Sunday morning.

They gave his name and ID and said "he is a prisoner and if Zionist lie about the dead and wounded then the fate of this soldier is their responsibility." CNN cannot independently confirm the claim.

Ron Prosor, Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, denied the report.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Hamas fighters the worst kind of terrorists.

As 81,000 Palestinians have fled the fighting to take refuge in UN schools in Gaza City, Israel says it has struck 2,300 terror targets in Gaza and found 13 tunnels used for weapons smuggling.
