Day 125 – Solidarity With Hostages After Four Months Of Captivity

Yesterday, exactly four months since the worst day in Jewish history since the Holocaust, Great Britain and France each paid tribute to the victims of October 7th. In recognition of the four months of war, American actress Gwyneth Paltrow also shared the tragic story of Shani Louk, a German-Israeli girl whose murdered body was paraded through Gaza and spat on by terrorists. Paltrow called out feminist bodies for their ringing silence on Hamas’ rape, murder and abuse of women on October 7th and expressed solidarity with the women remaining in captivity in Gaza.

Arabic news sources reported this morning that an Israeli delegation is en route to Cairo for further hostage negotiations. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh is also supposed to be in the Egyptian capital and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is also expected to join, apparently as part of efforts to reach a tenable deal for the release of the remaining hostages.

Hizballah has targeted in the last 24 hours a wide range of civilian areas in northern Israel, including Kiryat Shmona, the largest city in the Golan Heights, where an IDF non-commissioned officer was moderately injured by a guided anti-tank missile. Two additional soldiers were slightly injured in a separate incident by anti-tank fire to Biranit.  Finally, a third missile scored a direct hit on a home in the northern city of Metulla.

An additional terror attack was thwarted this morning by IDF forces in northern Samaria. Both suspects were carrying firearms but were neutralized by IDF forces before they were able to open fire.

Please pray for the release of ALL the remaining hostages. Please also pray for de-escalation in northern Israel and in Judea and Samaria.
