It has been cleared for publication that the Kiryat Shmona resident who was killed on Monday by an anti-tank missile was Meir Moyal, aged 55. Moyal was leaving an IDF post where he had delivered water and was hit by the missile.

The official announcement released by the Kiryat Shmona municipality stated: "Meir Moyal served many years on the Lebanese border and Mount Dov. He was killed two days ago on the northern border while working on a task for the country and the Israel Defense Forces. He was 55 years old at the time of his death."

Due to Homefront Command guidelines, Moyal's funeral will be attended by his immediate family only, and the mourning period will begin on Thursday morning.

Earlier on Wednesday, terrorists launched an anti-tank missile toward IDF soldiers in the area of Dovev. The IDF responded with artillery fire toward the origin of the launch. Two IDF soldiers were injured – one lightly and the other moderately – and have been evacuated to a hospital for medical treatment. Their families have been notified.
