JPost reports:

A heavily armed terrorist cell from the Sinai Peninsula opened fire on IDF soldiers on the Israeli – Egyptian border on Friday, killing one soldier and injuring a second, before the gunmen were killed in return fire.

Shots were fired at IDF Artillery Corps soldiers from a distance of 100 meters. One soldier sustained a bullet wound to the head and was killed immediately, IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said. The soldier has not yet been named.

Please say a prayer today for all of Israel’s courageous fighting men and women who stand at the front lines in the war on terror.

    Israeli Friends, we know you are bleeding daily due to the Jehadist or anti Holocaust deniers, even while you move in your own land, even while you are keeping your borders safe, even while you are defending your freedom. But be courageous and remain vigilant against your deadly enemies, because you are on the side of truth. Your cause is true. At last you will come out victorious, despite all the evils you challenge and despite the unjustly pressure you face more often. God bless Israel!

    This is a very sad day to have a young soldier killed on the eve of Yom Kippur. I feel so terrible for his whole family especially the parents. What was his crime? Being a Jew? Wanting peace?

      David: Just an FYI, Erev Yom Kippur is Tuesday, not tonight. Although, tonight is Shabbat!

    I have been brought up knowing that God’s chosen people are Jewish. If we stand up for Israel, God will bless us. If we don’t stand for Israel, we are cursed.God told Abraham he would be the father of a mighty nation,he has Issac with Sarah. The land belongs to the Jewish people.Shame on anyone taking land from Israel.Jerusalem belongs to the Jewish remnant.

    I am 60 years old. I was born an American but I have ALWAYS been Israeli in my heart. This may not mean much but while I was born American I may die Israeli. I would stand beside you or with you in any conflict. Age does not limit my capability or will power…..
