Two Dead, Several Injured in Hamas Barrage on Southern Israel

Stand for Israel  |  May 18, 2021

As the terrorist attacks on Israel begin their second week, two more lives were lost in the Holy Land. While Israel’s Iron Dome defense system intercepts 90% of the rockets launched from Gaza, shorter-range projectiles aimed at nearby border areas prove much harder to stop. The Times of Israel’s Judah Ari Gross reports on a Hamas barrage of rockets on southern Israel that left two dead and several more wounded:

Two foreign workers were killed and a number of people injured, one of them seriously, as Hamas pounded Gaza border communities and southern Israel with rocket and mortar barrages on Tuesday afternoon…

The strike injured eight other people, including one seriously and another moderately…

The two deaths meant that three of the 12 people killed in Israel since the start of the violence last week were foreign workers.

The deadly attack came shortly after the Israel Defense Forces said that a soldier was lightly wounded in a mortar attack while assisting in the transfer of humanitarian aid shipments into the Gaza Strip through the Erez Crossing…

Please continue to pray for God’s healing hand upon all of those wounded, for His comfort on the loved ones of those killed, and for His shalom, peace, over His people, Israel.
