15 soldiers fell in battle in Gaza – My heart bleeds

IDF clears for publication names of 9 soldiers who fell in battle while fighting Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip.


The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit on Wednesday morning cleared for publication the names of nine soldiers who fell in battle in the Gaza Strip:

– Ariel Reich, 24, from Jerusalem

– Asif Luger, 21, from Yagur

– Adi Danan, 20, from Yavne

– Halel Solomon, 20, from Dimona

– Erez Mishlovsky, 20, from Oranit

– Adi Leon, 20, from Nili.

– Ido Ovadia, 19, from Tel Aviv

– Lior Siminovich, 19, from Herzliya

– Roei Dawi, 20, from Jerusalem

– Pdaya Mark

In addition, two soldiers were seriously injured during the fighting in the last day. Their families have been notified.

On Tuesday, the names of two IDF soldiers who fell in battle against the Hamas terrorist organization in northern Gaza were cleared for publication.

Sergeant Roei Wolf, a 20-year-old resident of Ramat Gan, and Sergeant Lavi Lipshitz, a 20-year-old resident of Modi’in-Maccabim-Re’ut, were killed during battles on the ground against Hamas in northern Gaza.

Both soldiers served in the Givati Brigade Commando Unit. They were killed by an RPG that was fired at the building in which the Givati soldiers were stationed at the time.

The IDF began ground operations in northern Gaza on Friday, nearly three weeks after Hamas terrorists massacred over 1,400 people in southern Israel.

During the ground incursions into Gaza, Private Ori Megidish, an IDF soldier who was one of hundreds of people kidnapped by terrorists into Gaza on October 7, was successfully rescued from captivity.

  1. Here in Israel, we are prevented from seeing the absolutely horrific photos of what happened to our friends and relatives, our children and elderly – our neighbors. This is what the spokesperson for the IDF did this week. Journalists from abroad were shown a 37-minute film documenting the truth about Hamas and the phony claims of being a humanitarian resistance movement. Those reporters will never be the same.

    If true, this is extremely shocking. Israekis are not allowed to see the films and photographs of the atrocities committed by Hamas against their fellow-countrymen and relatives.

    Israeli Jews have never had a sense of their collective self-interest. That is true of diaspora Jews as well. A people who lack a sense of their collective self-interest interest has very little chance of surviving as a people.

    I think that someone, definitely a Christian lunatic, is using your name to get $5 a month from unsuspecting dimwits.

    But there are no such on Israpundit T.G.

  3. This announcement in Arutz Sheva.

    331 IDF soldiers have been killed in battle.
    A tragedy for all Jews everywhere and especially in Israel.

  4. Most of those killed were in an APC that was hit by an anti tank round. APC’s are not very well armored and are death traps.

    Israel has the Elbit Iron Fist anti missile system developed for APC’s and Tanks but the IDF was probably too busy trying to take on the Netanyahu government and its necessary judicial reform so did not equip all APC’s with this life saving device.

    This is after the IDF General Staff ignored 3 months of continuous warnings on the Gaza border from its front line intelligence troops: “Tatzpitaniyot.” Of course the Mossad and Shin Bet were doing nothing as well as they were too busy also trying to take down a duly elected government.

    Nothing to do with Netanyahu – the heavily politicized IDF, Mossad and Shin Bet screwed this up. It is on them 100%. Will anyone be fired or resign? You must be joking.

    2 Samuel 1
    King James Version
    1 Now it came to pass after the death of Saul, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, and David had abode two days in Ziklag;

    2 It came even to pass on the third day, that, behold, a man came out of the camp from Saul with his clothes rent, and earth upon his head: and so it was, when he came to David, that he fell to the earth, and did obeisance.

    3 And David said unto him, From whence comest thou? And he said unto him, Out of the camp of Israel am I escaped.

    4 And David said unto him, How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.

    5 And David said unto the young man that told him, How knowest thou that Saul and Jonathan his son be dead?

    6 And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him.

    7 And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called unto me. And I answered, Here am I.

    8 And he said unto me, Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite.

    9 He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life is yet whole in me.

    10 So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord.

    11 Then David took hold on his clothes, and rent them; and likewise all the men that were with him:

    12 And they mourned, and wept, and fasted until even, for Saul, and for Jonathan his son, and for the people of the Lord, and for the house of Israel; because they were fallen by the sword.

    13 And David said unto the young man that told him, Whence art thou? And he answered, I am the son of a stranger, an Amalekite.

    14 And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?

    15 And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.

    16 And David said unto him, Thy blood be upon thy head; for thy mouth hath testified against thee, saying, I have slain the Lord’s anointed.

    17 And David lamented with this lamentation over Saul and over Jonathan his son:

    18 (Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.)

    19 The beauty of Israel is slain upon thy high places: how are the mighty fallen!

    20 Tell it not in Gath, publish it not in the streets of Askelon; lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice, lest the daughters of the uncircumcised triumph.

    21 Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither let there be rain, upon you, nor fields of offerings: for there the shield of the mighty is vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, as though he had not been anointed with oil.

    22 From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty.

    23 Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.

    24 Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet, with other delights, who put on ornaments of gold upon your apparel.

    25 How are the mighty fallen in the midst of the battle! O Jonathan, thou wast slain in thine high places.

    26 I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.

    27 How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war perished!
