Two Israeli police officers were killed last week inside the Temple Mount compound during a shootout with three Arab-Israeli gunmen. All three attackers were killed. In response, Israel increased security at the Temple Mount, installing new metal detectors at the entrances to the ancient compound.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • An infant was among the injured in a firebomb attack in Jerusalem just hours after the Temple Mount terrorist incident. The family of three was injured after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at the shuttle bus in which they were riding.
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu became Israel’s first leader to visit Hungary since 1989. Netanyahu met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who formally acknowledged Hungary’s anti-Semitic past.
  • The Fellowship has donated ambulances to one of Israel’s poorest communities, the Bedouins, who live throughout the Negev desert.
  • A group of 150 French Jews, including the family of Philippe Braham, made aliyah (immigration to Israel) this week on a Fellowship-sponsored Freedom Flight. Braham was killed in the 2015 string of terror attacks in France.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein with an urgent call to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East.
