There was a brief period of calm on Israel’s southern border. But terrorists in Gaza began their rocket attacks again today. The Times of Israel’s Judah Ari Gross reports that four mortar shells were launched into Israel on Wednesday morning:

Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired four mortar shells toward southern Israel on Wednesday afternoon, causing neither injury nor damage, the military said.

Two of the incoming projectiles were intercepted by the military’s Iron Dome air defense system. The other two appeared to strike open fields in Israel’s Sha’ar Hanegev region, east of northern Gaza…

“Four launches were detected from the territory of the Gaza Strip toward Israeli territory. Aerial defense soldiers intercepted two of the launches,” the military said in a statement.

The attack triggered sirens in the Israeli communities of Sa’ad, Kfar Aza and Nahal Oz, sending hundreds of residents rushing to bomb shelters.

This round of mortar fire came three days after alarms also sounded in Nahal Oz, apparently due to heavy machine gun fire from the coastal enclave…

We pray that God’s hand of protection will continue to be on His people, Israel. And that if more rockets should be launched, The Fellowship will be able to provide safety and assistance to those Israelis who live in the terrorist projectiles’ path.
