An attack on the Gaza border, and one Israeli soldier is in critical conditon:
Israel’s response to the bomb attack on the Gaza border Tuesday morning that wounded an IDF officer will be “very hard,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned.
Netanyahu’s comments, issued at the beginning of a meeting with visiting Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev, came in response to an attack earlier in the day that critically wounded an IDF officer during a routine patrol near the Gaza border fence.
Paramedics treated the officer on site; a helicopter then evacuated him to Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.
Please pray for a swift recovery for this IDF officer, and for the safety of all the brave men and women of the IDF, who daily stand at the front lines of the war on terror. “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone” (Psalm 91:11-12).
