At 3:00 A.M. on Friday, a few hours after the start of the IDF ground incursion into the Gaza Strip, an exchange of gunfire led to Operation Protective Edge's first IDF fatality. First Sargent Eitan Barak, a 20-year-old fighter from Herzliya in the Nahal Brigade, was mortally wounded in north Gaza, apparently by light arms fire.
