We already told you about the nine armored vehicles we are purchasing for border towns. These vehicles are apart of Israel’s larger plan for greater security in communities near Gaza, the northern border, and West Bank, reports The Jerusalem Post:

The Defense Ministry plans to spend NIS 150 million on more than 200 armored vehicles for communities near the Gaza border, the northern border, and in the West Bank.

Local security groups near Gaza and the northern border have been under the threat of anti-tank weapons for years. During the October 7 terrorist attack, they had no independent patrol or maneuvering capability that could resist gunfire.

Had they had such vehicles, it would not have averted the entire tragedy by a long shot, but it could have saved many lives and prolonged some of the battles until IDF reinforcements arrived…

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) said it would distribute more than NIS 7.5m. in the coming weeks toward the purchase of nine armored security vehicles for border communities.
