Body of American Vet Killed by Palestinian Terrorist Returned Home

The body of Taylor Force, an American war veteran and graduate student, was given a send-off ceremony at Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv earlier this week. The veteran of both wars in Afghanistan and Iraq was killed last week by a Palestinian terrorist some 500 feet from where Vice President Joe Biden was meeting with former Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• Police in France say they foiled what’s being called an “imminent attack” by ISIS in a raid there on Wednesday. Three men and one woman with suspected ties to ISIS were arrested during the raid.
• The military arm of Islamic Jihad operating in Gaza released a propaganda video this week threatening Israel Defense Forces soldiers patrolling the border.
The Fellowship has given a record-breaking $8.5 million donation to aid IDF lone soldiers in need. The aid will provide basic clothes, appliances, and other daily resources.
• The U.S. Department of Defense is collaborating with Israeli forces to develop a system of defensive tunnels to counter the terror tunnels used by Hamas during the 2014 conflict with Gaza.
