In partnership with local municipalities and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Home Front Command, The Fellowship is placing bomb shelters along bus routes in a new $1.5 million initiative to protect Israelis on the northern border, reports JNS:

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews on Wednesday announced a $1.5 million-plus initiative to place 123 shelters alongside bus stops serving 42 northern Israeli communities, amid Israel’s ongoing conflict with Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

The program, which will ensure that all public bus stops within nine kilometers (6.6 miles) of the Israel-Lebanon border have protected spaces, was developed in coordination with the local municipalities and the Israel Defense Forces’ Home Front Command.
