The Israel Defense Forces launched “Operation Good Neighbor” in June 2016 as a response to a need for help. Syrians caught in the ravages of war were in desperate need of daily necessities and medical care. Thus, the IDF Northern Command set up an encampment at the border to provide such assistance, and Christian organizations have joined forces to provide humanitarian and medical aid.
Several weeks ago I shared reports about a team of American medical personnel who went deep into Syria on a medical mission as part of “Operation Good Neighbor.” (See Sharing the Love of Christ in Syria and Jews Helping Christians Helping Muslims.)
As we move into a new year, I want to give you another glimpse of how mightily God can move when Jews and Christians work together to bless Muslims. Jerusalem Dateline documents the love shared at the Israeli-Syrian border in this 5-minute documentary. Enjoy!
