18 year old IDF soldier Yosef Partuk was killed today.

An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier, 18-year-old Col. Yosef Partuk, was killed Tuesday as the conflict between Gaza and the Jewish state continued.

A reserve Armored Corps IDF officer was also injured near the Gaza border. The IDF announced Partuk’s death not long after six people were injured when a rocket struck an apartment building in the city of Rishon LeZion. The top floors of the building were burned.

Also on Tuesday, one Israeli was injured from rocket attacks in Ashkelon and several people were injured in Ashdod. One grocery store was completely destroyed, according to the Jerusalem Post. Gaza terrorists fired 20 rockets at Beersheba, but the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted at least 11 of those. A bus and a car were damaged, but no one was injured.
