An Israeli soldier wounded during the Hamas attack in southern Israel on October 7 died of his wounds yesterday, the military says.

He is named as Sgt. Shoam Moshe Ben-Harush, 20, a soldier in the Nahal Brigade’s reconnaissance unit, from Hispin.

Ben-Harush’s death brings the total number of slain soldiers, officers, and reservists — many of whom are local security officers — in the war to 310.
