Hezbollah incited terror along the Israeli-Lebanese border last week, igniting a series of fires that quickly raged into northern Israel. The fires threatened an IDF post as well as the town of Margaliot.

  • Two Israeli teens — a brother and sister — were injured in a car-ramming attack while waiting at a bus stop in the West Bank last week. The man driving the car was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer.
  • U.S. Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were blocked from entering Israel last week because Israeli officials believed they would use the trip to promote the BDS movement (Boycott Divestment and Sanctions).
  • Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon said his country didn’t want to give a platform to the Congresswomen.
  • An Ohio man has been arrested and charged with threatening a Jewish community center in Youngstown, Ohio, after posting a threat of gun violence against the center on Instagram.
  • U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned the U.N. Security Council that Iran and its proxies continue to “foment terror and unrest” in the Middle East.
