Israel Under Attack
Rockets From Hamas and
Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip
More than 200 rockets and mortar shells have been fired at southern Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza since early Saturday morning. At this moment, another barrage is underway.
The end time pace continues to escalate as Israel wages war on all fronts for their future.
Threats to Israel’s
and International Airport
Thus far, there have been three Israelis wounded. No number of Palestinian injuries have been reported yet, but it is likely that there will be many.
The rockets are reaching deeper into Israeli territory than usual. One rocket hit Beit Shemesh, a religious community about 30 minutes south of Jerusalem.
The onslaught — the most intense after months of calm — comes just days after Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, and just days before Israel celebrates Memorial Day and their 71st Independence Day this coming week.
For the first time, Israel’s nuclear facilities have come under threat. The Islamic Jihad terrorist group in Gaza has threatened to attack Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona and has also threatened to attack Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.
Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently holding an emergency meeting with senior military commanders at the IDF war room in Tel Aviv.
So far, IDF forces have launched at least 30 retaliatory air strikes, targeting Hamas and Islamic Jihad command centers and other military facilities inside the Gaza Strip.
- Please pray for restoration of calm
- Pray for wisdom for Israeli leaders to know how best to deal with the situation
- Pray for the safety of Israeli citizens and families in the line of fire and pray for the suffering Palestinians of Gaza to somehow be liberated from the Hellish Hamas tyranny that is ruining their lives.
