St.-Sgt. Roi Nissim, 20, of Rishon Lezion, was killed and five other soldiers were wounded Sunday night, when their Orhan outpost in the Gaza Strip was blown up by terrorists who tunneled under the position and detonated a massive explosive charge. One of the soldiers was moderately wounded, while the three others were lightly hurt.
In a heavy exchange of fire following the explosion, two terrorists were killed. Hamas and Fatah claimed responsibility for the attack.
