The 21-year-old, a member of the 55th Brigade’s 7155th Battalion, was killed during fighting in southern Gaza on Monday, the Israeli military has said.
A second soldier from the same battalion was seriously injured during the same battle, while a third soldier from the Combat Engineering Corps’ 603rd Battalion was also injured in a separate incident in southern Gaza.
The UN’s latest situation report, citing the Israeli military, says that 186 Israeli soldiers have been killed in Gaza since October 7. It is not known if this latest death is counted in that total.
More than 24,000 Palestinians have been killed during that same period, according to Gaza’s Ministry of Health.
