The Israel Defense Forces announces the deaths of three soldiers who were abducted by Hamas on October 7.

They are: Staff Sgt. Tomer Yaakov Ahimas, 20, from Lehavim; Sgt. Kiril Brodski, 19, from Ramat Gan; and Sgt. Shaked Dahan, 19, from Afula.

The three were killed on October 7 and the military’s chief rabbi declared their deaths based on various findings obtained by the IDF.

The three are listed as “fallen soldiers held hostage by a terror group,” but Ahimas and Brodski can be buried according to halacha.

Their deaths bring the toll of fallen IDF soldiers since October 7 to 395.
