The tensions between Israel and Hezbollah are rising on the northern border, and The Fellowship is helping protect the 60,000 evacuated and displaced Israelis affected by this fighting, reports The Jerusalem Post:

The organization has committed to implementing an additional 50 mobile bomb shelters in northern Israel in the coming weeks, along with 123 that were authorized in recent weeks and are in the last phases of implementation.

The northern town of Kiryat Shmona, which is 2 kilometers from the Lebanon border, has been targeted multiple times a day, with 80% of its 23,000 residents evacuated. IFCJ also plans to install 32 shelters in the industrial area of Kiryat Shmona, which is not evacuated like the rest of the town.

According to Safwan Marich, Director of the Safety and Emergency Response Division for IFCJ, the threat of a northern front opening up as military attention remains focused on Gaza poses a critical threat to Israel’s defense in ways that have the potential to endanger hundreds of communities across Israel’s northern border.
