Capt. Boris Yarmulnik, 28, killed by a rocket during Operation Pillar of Defense, was laid to rest Friday at the military cemetery in the Ben Zion neighborhood of Netanya.

Yarmulnik, an IDF reserve soldier, died of his wounds Thursday after being critically wounded in a Wednesday rocket attack in the Eshkol area.

Four other soldiers were wounded lightly in a rocket attack Wednesday, and airlifted to hospital.

Yarmulnik became the sixth Israeli citizen killed in rocket attacks from Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defense.
