Late last night (around 11:45 am Israel time) the Code Red alarm sounded in Gaza border communities as a rocket hit a structure in Sha'ar HaNegev Regional Council shortly thereafter. The rocket launched from Gaza was fired during a ceremony for a slain soldier. My "Red Alert" phone app went crazy as I watched report after report of rocket attacks every few seconds. I sat in silence and prayed that God would spare lives. Later I learned that there were no casualties reported. Two of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome system. The Israel Defence Force retaliated by attacking Hamas positions in northern Gaza.
There are not enough bomb shelters in the areas attacked for people to run to safety.
Time is running out. A Song For Israel donor has pledged to match every dollar donated by December 31st toward our Bomb Shelter campaign. Last night twelve rockets hit in the very area that a new bomb shelter is needed. Please donate and help save lives in Israel.
