Egypt announced it will close its border crossing with Gaza beginning Monday. While no reason was given, there is speculation that it is in response to Hamas rioting on the border with Israel. These riots resulted in an Israeli Border Police officer being critically wounded. Israeli aircraft struck several Hamas weapons storage and manufacturing facilities in retaliation. Please pray that this situation will not escalate again into a full-blown war. Please also pray for continued cooperation between Egypt and Israel where the Gaza Strip is concerned. Lastly, please continue to pray for a full and complete healing for the Israeli officer who was critically wounded.
