The IDF spokesman on Friday identified the soldier killed this morning in a gunfight in Gaza as Sgt. Netanel Moshiashvili, 21.

Moshiashvili's family was notified of his death shortly after the incident.

He will be laid to rest at the military cemetery in Ashkelon, the city from which he hails, later on Friday.
