The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) has announced the death of a soldier after sustaining critical wounds from a Hezbollah drone attack targeting the northern settlement of “Arab al-Aramsh” earlier on Wednesday - April 17.

Major (reserve) Dor Zimel, 27 years old, a deputy company commander in the Etzioni Brigade, from Even Yehuda has died today after being critically wounded in the Hezbollah attack - per the IOF’s statement.

He was evacuated to the Galilee Medical Center after suffering from a severe head injury that caused brain damage - the hospital later declared him brain-dead.

The IOF previously stated that 14 of its soldiers were wounded in the Hezbollah explosive-laden drone and guided missile attack on northern “Israel”.

Six troops were seriously wounded, two in moderate condition, and another six “lightly hurt” - according to the IOF’s statement.

Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack, which it said was a response to an earlier “Israeli” attack which killed three of its members in southern Lebanon, including a senior commander in Radwan Force - a special operations unit in Hezbollah.
