Terrorist Mortar Strikes Kindergarten in Israel

Mortar lands in Israeli kindergarten, May 29, 2018

Yael Eckstein, The Fellowship’s Global Executive Vice President, sent us this report from Israel:

This morning at 7:00, children in southern Israel were in their school buses on the way to school when the barrage began. At least 28 mortars were fired from Gaza at southern Israel.

The bus drivers immediately found shelter, and all the school children are safe. But one mortar landed in the yard of their kindergarten. If the terrorists had fired just 15 minutes later, the outcome could have been disastrous.

Someone once told me that children aren’t only raised by their parents – they’re surrounded by angels at every moment.

Indeed, God’s heavenly angels were watching out for Israel’s children this morning. Baruch HaShem!

Please pray for Israel and her people this morning as they face an increasing wave of terrorist violence. And follow Yael on Facebook for more up-to-the-minute information on the situation in the Holy Land.
