One Million Israelis Living in Fear of New Rocket Attacks From Gaza

Pro-Iranian terrorists in Gaza have escalated their war against Israel. In the last 24 hours, more than 80 rockets, missiles and mortars have been fired from Gaza at civilian population centers in southern Israel.

“The Gaza rocket barrage on Israel’s southern communities continues unabated,” reported Ynet News. “Ten rockets were fired at the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. There were no injuries. The Iron Dome system intercepted one rocket over Ashkelon after intercepting seven more earlier on Wednesday….Three foreign workers at the Eshkol Regional Council were injured on Wednesday. Two of the three sustained serious wounds and one sustained light wounds. They were rushed to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.”

Israeli schools in the south have all been closed. Residents are being told to stay in or near their bomb shelters.

“Hamas's armed wing, the Al-Qassam brigades, took responsibility Wednesday for both a barrage of rockets unleashed against Israel since Tuesday night and the bomb that critically injured an IDF officer along the Gaza border on Tuesday,” reported the Jerusalem Post. “The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) took responsibility for the Gaza border bomb.”

• Please pray for the one million Israelis that are leaving in fear of rocket attacks.
• Please pray for peace and security to be reestablished.
• Pray, too, for Israeli leaders to have wisdom to know how best to handle the situation.
