The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed on Wednesday morning that Sergeant First Class Tal Lahat, 21, from Kfar Saba, was killed during combat in the central Gaza Strip. Lahat was a member of the Maglan Unit in the Commando Brigade.

On Monday, the IDF announced that a medic from the 99th Division was seriously injured in fighting in northern Gaza. The medic was transported to a hospital in Israel for treatment, and his family has been notified of his condition.

Additionally, on Tuesday evening, the IDF reported that the IAF, using precision munitions, targeted and killed a Hamas military wing terrorist involved in the October 7 massacre in southern Israel.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit stated, “The IDF is looking into the reports that civilians were harmed, adjacent to the Alawda School in the south of Khan Yunis, which is located near the location of the strike. The incident is under review.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the Palestinian Red Crescent reported that dozens of civilians were killed and injured in the Israeli strike, which allegedly hit tents near the school sheltering Gazans who had fled their homes. Gaza sources claimed that 29 people were killed in the attack.

Earlier in the week, the Paratroopers Brigade, the 7th Brigade, and the Yahalom Unit operated in the Shejaiya area under the 98th Division’s command, conducting both above and underground operations. The division’s soldiers engaged in close-quarters combat with terrorist cells, eliminated over 150 terrorists, dismantled terrorist infrastructure, and encountered and destroyed booby-trapped buildings and explosives. They also found dozens of weapons and intelligence documents abandoned by the terrorists.

Meanwhile, the IDF and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) launched a counterterrorism operation in the Gaza City area, including at UNRWA headquarters. This operation was initiated following intelligence that indicated the presence of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist infrastructure, operatives, weapons, and detention rooms in Gaza City.
