Three Israeli Soldiers Die in Gaza Trap


Three Israeli soldiers died Tuesday when a booby trap was set off during combat operations in a building in southern Gaza’s Rafah.

Israel’s public broadcaster Kan radio said the casualties were injured by an explosive device set off in a building in Rafah.

The Times of Israel reports the three slain troops all served in the Nahal Brigade’s 50th Battalion.

The outlet further noted their deaths bring the toll of slain Israeli soldiers in the IDF’s ground offensive against Hamas in Gaza and amid operations along the border to 291.

Israeli leaders say their forces must enter Rafah to dismantle Hamas terrorists operations and return hostages taken in the Oct. 7 terror attack that triggered the war.

Residents in Rafah reported heavy fighting Wednesday as Israeli forces pressed their assault on the border town once seen as the territory’s last refuge.

In another incident Tuesday, an officer and a soldier of the Combat Engineering Corps’ 614th Battalion were seriously wounded while fighting terror operatives in northern Gaza.
