The Fellowship is on the ground delivering meals to elderly, IDF soldiers, and families in harm’s way. Now we learn from the Times of Israel, that 200,000 Israelis are internally displaced following the terror attacks. Our aid to those on the ground, especially for evacuees and displaced Israelis, is all the more important.

The Times of Israel tells us more about those who’ve been displaced:

Some 200,000 Israelis have been internally displaced in the ongoing Israel-Hamas following the terror group’s October 7 massacre in southern Israel, and amid escalating skirmishes on the Lebanon border in the north with terror group Hezbollah and allied Palestinian factions, according to Israeli authorities.

About half of the 200,000 were instructed to evacuate from 105 communities near the Gaza and Lebanon borders in the south and north, while half left areas close to the front of their own volition, a spokesperson for the Prime Minister’s Office said Sunday.
