The army says the soldier was killed by mortar fire earlier today in northern Gaza.
The confirmation comes as explosions continue to pound the Strip as Israeli forces push further into the Hamas-run territory after launching a ground assault overnight.

Palestinians say they have targeted an Israeli helicopter and destroyed a tank amid the ongoing Israeli ground incursion into the Gaza Strip.
In a statement issued Sunday, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades - the military wing of Hamas - said it had destroyed an Israeli tank after its ground forces crossed the border with the Gaza Strip late Saturday.
The al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades also said it has targeted an Israeli helicopter flying over the territory. However, the Israeli military has made no comment by about the report.
