IDF Soldier Critically Hurt When Missile Strikes Bus

IDF Soldier Critically Hurt When Missile Strikes Bus

Multiple Israelis have been injured from the barrage of terrorist rockets fired from Gaza today — more than 100 projectiles in all so far. But The Times of Israel’s Judah Ari Gross tells us about one who is in critical condition — a young IDF soldier who was standing next to a bus struck by an anti-tank missile:

The barrage began after an anti-tank missile was fired from the Gaza Strip at a bus that was parked at the Black Arrow memorial site in the Sha’ar Hanegev region of southern Israel, a few hundred meters from the Gaza border.

The bus caught fire after the projectile hit it. One soldier, 19, who was standing nearby was critically injured. The driver of the bus, 25, was also taken to the hospital after he suffered a panic attack, medics said.

The 19-year-old Israeli was taken to Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center in unstable condition, with injuries throughout his body, medics said…

Please pray for God’s hand of healing over this young man, as well as His hand of protection over all of Israel.
