Hitchhiking has been a popular way for Israelis to get around since the early days of re-establishing the nation. There is a sense of brotherhood and trust between Israelis that has led to hitchhiking being a surprisingly safe way to get around. Unfortunately, terrorists have been especially targeting hitchhikers lately in Israel and a number of people have recently lost their lives in these attacks. To combat this, Israel has stationed security personnel at popular hitchhiking pickup spots. Concrete protection barriers have also been installed that are designed to reduce the ability of a terrorist to carry out a drive-by attack. Please pray for the effectiveness of these new security measures and for protection from further attacks.
