Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Four IDF soldiers were wounded when a terrorist bomb was detonated near their vehicle as they patrolled the Gaza border.
  • Speaking at a security conference in Munich, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu challenged the international community to take a stand against Iran.
  • American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley again showed strong support for Israel at the U.N.
