Givati Officer Seriously Injured in Gaza Terror Attack (Updated)


5212[1]

A Givati company commander was injured near Kissufim (Gaza border). The officer’s unit was on morning patrol to ensure that the path was clear of bombs near the fence which Palestinians try to place on a regular basis.

Details are still unclear as to whether the officer was injured by a roadside bomb or by sniper fire.

The officer was treated on site, and transported by helicoptor to Seroka hospital and originally listed in moderate condition.

His condition deteriorated and he is now listed as in serious condition.

UPdate: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the incident in the Gaza Strip at the start of his Tuesday morning meeting with the President of Bulgaria Roussin Flvenliib. He said that “Israel will respond very harshly to this entire chain of terror.”

Netanyahu congratulated the Bulgarian president and said that the terrorist attack that killed five Israelis in Burgas is “an example of the fact that we are in the kidst of a difficult campaign against a global terror network organized in Iran and working in wide circles.”

 

 

Correction: Captain Ziv Shilon is not a Golani battalion commander as originally stated, but a Givati company commander.
