IDF reserve officer Lt. Boris Yarmulnik, 28, died Thursday of wounds he suffered from a terrorist rocket fired by Gazans a day earlier. The rocket was fired at the Eshkol area in the early afternoon, before the "ceasefire" with the terrorists went into effect.
Lt. Yarmulnik, a resident of Netanya, is the second IDF soldier killed in Operation Pillar of Defense.
The officer was taken to Soroka Hospital in critical condition. He was operated upon and kept in the Intensive Care Unit, but eventually he succumbed.
There are still five casualties from the Tel Aviv bus bombing in Ichilov Hospital. One of them is in moderate condition and the rest are considered to be suffering from light wounds.
