Dog Tags and God's Grace

Last week we told you about the IDF soldier whose life was spared after an enemy bullet struck him as he manned Israel's border with Lebanon. Today, Breaking Israel News' Ariella Mendlowitz tells us a bit more about how God's mighty hand of protection saved this young man's life:

An IDF soldier defending Israel on the Lebanon border experienced a personal miracle on Wednesday as his life was saved from enemy gunfire.

The soldier was standing guard at an IDF border post near the northern Israeli city of Metulla when the position came under enemy fire.

By the grace of God, the single (or multiple) shots did not injure anyone- soldier or civilian- although, the Jerusalem Post reported, a bullet caused a piece of shrapnel from the army post to launch into the air, before striking the dog tag of the soldier.
