The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) announced Tuesday the death of three of its soldiers, including a “senior officer”, in the ongoing battles in the Gaza Strip.

The names and ranks are as follows:

Lieutenant Colonel (reserve) Netanel Yaacov Elkouby, 36, the commander of the Gaza Division’s Southern Brigade’s 630th Battalion, from Haifa - killed in south Gaza battles.

Major (reserve) Yair Cohen, 30, an acting company commander in the Gaza Division’s Southern Brigade’s 630th Battalion, from Ramat Gan - killed in south Gaza.

Sergeant (reserve) Ziv Chen, 27, of the Gaza Division’s Southern Brigade’s 630th Battalion, from Kfar Saba - killed in south Gaza battles.

Two more soldiers were critically wounded in the same battles - per the IOF’s announcement

The death toll of IOF soldiers in the ground invasion of the Gaza Strip since Oct. 27, 2023 thus rises to 232.
