The conflict continues: Three Israelis Killed

Waking up to sad news today.  The violence from Gaza and the attacks on Israel  continue to escalate. Three Israelis have been killed today.

Two IDF soldiers Major Amotz Greenberg, 45, and Sgt. Adar Barsano, 20 were killed after a Hamas terror cell infiltrated Israel through a tunnel.  One gunman was killed while others escaped back to Gaza.  The ground incursion in to Gaza is designed specifically to find and destroy these tunnels, to prevent further attacks on the Israeli people. 34 tunnels shafts have been discovered in Gaza, with 5 reaching directly into Israel.

Ouda Lafi al-Waj, 32  was also  killed Saturday and a 3-month-old girl was seriously injured after their  compound near Dimona was hit by a rocket fired by Gaza terrorists  Three other family members were also injured in the attack.

In spite of the hostilities, Israel is doing everything to ensure that humanitarian aid  is sent to the people of Gaza.  Today Israel  facilitated the transfer of 5 trucks carrying 100 tons of medicine & supplies via the Erez crossing  to hospitals in Gaza.

Praying for a speedy end to this conflict
