Posted By on March 30, 2024

The Israel Defense Forces announces the death of a soldier killed during fighting against Hamas in the Khan Younis area of the southern Gaza Strip earlier today.

He is named as Sgt. First Class Alon Kudriashov, 21, of the Commando Brigades Egoz unit, from Modiin.

His death brings the toll of slain troops in the ground offensive against Hamas to 254.

Kudriashov was killed and 16 other troops of the Egoz unit were wounded, including six seriously, after a Hamas operative fired an RPG at a building used as an encampment near Nasser Hospital, according to an IDF probe.

Hamas published footage of the Friday morning incident, showing it launching an RPG at the building where the Egoz troops were.

All of the wounded troops have been taken to hospitals.

Egoz troops had killed a Hamas gunman near their encampment a few hours before the RPG fire, according to the IDF.
