Kibbutz Nahal Oz, the closest place in Israel to Gaza, is only 875 yards (800 meters) of open fields, with an iron fence in the middle, from the Gaza Strip. In Nahal Oz, once the air raid siren goes on, you have seven seconds to reach shelter. The “Iron Dome” system, which protects large parts of Israel from rockets and missiles, doesn’t cover the Gaza border region — the distance is too short. Earlier this year, a new terror tunnel was found and destroyed to not allow terrorists to infiltrate Israel. Twenty families have recently moved to Kibbutz Nahal Oz replacing the 19 families who moved away from the Kibbutz following Operation Protective Edge. Please pray for these families and all the families in that area. May the Lord’s shield of protection cover them from any attacks (Nahum 1:7).
