Terror struck this week in London when a terrorist used his vehicle to ram into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge, killing two and wounding more than 20. The terrorist, identified as 52-year-old Khalid Masood, then ran toward Parliament, stabbing and killing a police officer. Masood was shot by police and killed.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
- In response to the attack, authorities conducted raids at six locations across England, arresting several suspects who may have helped plan the attack.
- The co-founder of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement was arrested in Israel earlier this week on tax evasion charges. Omar Barghouti failed to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in income.
- Syria launched three missiles into Israel this week, with one of those missiles neutralized by Israel’s Arrow air-defense system. The IDF battalion in charge of the defense system is a Fellowship-sponsored battalion.
