The IDF announces the death of Sgt. Oz Daniel, 19, who was killed and abducted by Hamas on October 7.

Daniel served in the 7th Armored Brigade’s 77th Battalion, and his body was taken from the Gaza border, following a battle with terrorists during the Hamas onslaught.

His death was recently declared by the chief rabbi based on findings and new intelligence information.

While Daniel’s body remains in Gaza, his family can still sit shiva according to Jewish law.

A funeral will be held Monday at 2 p.m. at the military cemetery in his hometown of Kfar Saba.
