Israel Under Attack

Israel is under attack! Hamas, the terrorist group ruling the Gaza Strip, fired a barrage of rockets into Israel on Monday. Numerous rockets hit towns surrounding Jerusalem; others were taken out by the Iron Dome defense system. Then, on Tuesday night, Hamas pummeled the Gush Dan area of Israel with rockets, which includes Tel Aviv and the surrounding cities. There were civilian casualties in Israel, and numerous people are in hospitals being treated for rocket-induced injuries. Tragically, a father and daughter were killed when a rocket slammed into their home in Lod. Many rockets hit apartment buildings in Israeli cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod, Rishon Lezion, and more. The IDF has called up 5,000 reservists and is preparing for an escalation of military action. According to latest statistics, Hamas fired over 400 rockets into Israel since Monday. Please pray for Israel in this time of need! Please pray for wisdom for Israel’s military leaders as they prepare for a more intense campaign against Hamas. Lastly, please pray for calm to return to Israel and for the LORD’s hand to protect innocent civilians in Israel and the Palestinian areas.
