Hundreds attend a funeral for the IDF soldier who was killed in an apparent friendly fire incident last night.

Nathan Fitoussi, 20, was shot dead by a comrade in the Kfir Brigade after he was apparently misidentified upon returning to a guard post along the West Bank border barrier near the Palestinian city of Tulkarem.

Fitoussi, a new immigrant from France, is laid to rest in Netanya.

His sister eulogizes Fitoussi, saying he was a very generous person who only gave to others.

“We have to say thank you to God for taking him, he was a pure soul,” she says.
