An Israeli soldier of Indian origin was killed during fighting in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip this week. Members of the Indian Jewish community gave this information. Master Sergeant (Reg.) Gil Daniel, a resident of Ashdod, was killed in Gaza on Tuesday and his last rites were performed at the military cemetery in his hometown on Wednesday, members of the Indian Jewish community said. Israeli security forces confirmed that Gil Daniel was among two soldiers killed during fighting in the Gaza Strip.
The Indian Jewish Heritage Center said, “Israel has lost many of its soldiers in this gruesome and brutal war. In this war, Israel has lost many of its best sons and daughters who fought for the honor of the nation. Today, we mourn the death of another IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldier, Master Sergeant (Reg.) Gil Daniel, 34. He was the son of Joel and Mazal. Gil Daniel, a member of the Bene Israel community, belongs to Maharashtra, India. About 86 Israeli soldiers have been killed in fighting since the IDF began its ground campaign in Gaza.
4 Israeli soldiers of Indian origin killed
At least four Israeli soldiers of Indian origin are known to have been killed since October 7. Meanwhile, Israeli troops on Wednesday launched attacks targeting Hamas militants in the center of Rafah, the Gaza Strip’s second largest city. The Israeli Army gave this information. Israeli ground attacks have forced thousands of Palestinians to flee to the southernmost tip of the territory and prevented aid groups from delivering food, water and other supplies. At the same time, international human rights groups have claimed that the two attacks carried out by Israel in South Lebanon about two months ago were clearly deliberate and were a direct attack on civilians. In these attacks, a videographer of British news agency Reuters was killed and six other journalists were injured. Amnesty International and human rights monitoring groups said Israel’s attacks should be investigated as war crimes. (Language)
