Israeli army says fourth soldier dies after Gaza crossing attack

JERUSALEM, May 6, 2024 (BSS/AFP) - The number of Israeli soldiers killed in a 
rocket attack launched from the besieged Gaza Strip towards the Kerem Shalom 
border crossing has risen to four, the military announced Monday, updating an 
earlier figure.

The military did not specify whether the soldier was among the 12 servicemen 
wounded in the attack on Sunday.

The military said on Sunday that three soldiers were killed in the attack, 
which was claimed later by the armed wing of Palestinian militant group 

The soldiers were hit while guarding heavy machinery, tanks and bulldozers 
that were stationed in the area.

The attack prompted the Israeli authorities to close the crossing, a key 
gateway for vital humanitarian aid into Gaza.

The military said 14 rockets were fired at the crossing from an area adjacent 
to the Rafah crossing.
