In these operations, according to the Corps Headquarters' Medical Department, the corps suffered total losses of 936 men.[1][dead link] According to Croat authors, in the first phase against partisans on Istrian peninsula (Unterhehmen Istrien), some 2000 partisans and 2000 civilians were killed by German forces, and additional 1200 were arrested, with some 400 transported to concentration camps.[2]
