Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir said on X (previously known as Twitter) that the son of Aliyah and Integration Minister Ofir Sofer (Religious Zionism party) was lightly wounded in battle on Thursday in the city of Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip.

Ben-Gvir wrote that he was praying for the swift recovery of the minister's son and other wounded soldiers.

It's the second time Ofir Sofer's son is wounded during the war. He was previously injured on January 11 while serving in the Paratroopers Brigade. After recovery, he returned to Gaza.
