21 year old Golani Staff-Sergeant Netanel Moshiashvili from Ashkelon was killed early Friday morning in a skirmish with a Palestinian terrorist that infiltrated into Israel from Gaza. The terrorist was also killed in the encounter.

According to Ynet, the terrorist approached the security fence near Kisufim at approximately 4:30 a.m., cut it, and snuck into Israel. A Golani unit rapidly deployed to the area, coming under fire by the terrorist. In the ensuing gunfight, the 21 year old soldier was shot, and soon after died of his wound.

Palestinian witnesses near Abassan, a village in Southern Gaza, reported hearing gunshots, and shortly thereafter, IAF jets flying overhead.

The IAF attacked multiple targets in Gaza in response. It is believed that this attack was actually another abduction attempt.

Last week, two soldiers were wounded when they were shot by sniper fire while patrolling the Gaza border. They were treated for mild injuries in a nearby hospital.
