In a tragic development, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has confirmed the death of Major Amisher Ben David, a 43-year-old officer from the settlement of Ali, during a battle in the southern Gaza Strip. Major Ben David, who served as a commander in the commando formation, was killed earlier today in an encounter with terrorists. He leaves behind his wife Shlomit and their five children.

The IDF also reported that another officer in the commando formation was seriously injured during the same battle and has been referred for medical treatment.

Major Ben David was the cousin of Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who paid tribute to him on social media, reminiscing about their close bond and childhood memories. "My dear cousin, Amisher, the hero of Israel fell in the battle in Gaza," the minister wrote. "What a man. What pain. There are no words."

The funeral for Major Ben David is scheduled to take place tomorrow at 1:00 PM at the military cemetery on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. The settlement of Ali expressed profound sadness over his death and announced that further details about the funeral would be provided later.

Ariel Elmaleh, chairman of the settlement Ali, mourned Major Ben David's passing, recalling their time together at the 'Bnei David' pre-military training school. "Amisher had a heart of kindness and help to others," Elmaleh said. "His death is a great loss for our settlement."

The Binyamin Regional Council also mourned the loss of Major Ben David, describing him as a high school educator, volunteer ambulance driver, and benevolent figure in the community. "Thanks to him and thanks to his fellow heroes, the nation of Israel lives," said Israel Gantz, head of the council.

The entire nation of Israel joins in mourning the loss of Major Amisher Ben David, a dedicated officer and beloved family man. May his memory be blessed.
