With Shabbat soon here-let us pray for a respite from the terror that struck Israel yesterday. More than 15 rockets hit southern Israel following the terrorist attacks against Israel in Eilat yesterday. 8 people died in the shootings in Eilat including army officers. The rocket attacks injured two people seriously and others were treated for shock and caused fires. 10 rockets had been shot earlier at Beersheva and Ashkelon.
Israel Defense Forces retailated by bombing a munitions factory in Gaza.
This is so different than the summer I just spent in Israel which was relatively calm!
I pray that in the run-up to the UN General Assembly meetings in September when the Palestinians will seek a vote to affirm their nationhood status that this doesn’t become a daily occurrence.
If anything reigns down on Israel and Gaza…Let it be peace.
