As you likely know by now, Iran fired about 20 rockets toward Israel in the very early hours Thursday morning. None of the rockets reached Israeli soil, as most fell in Syria and four others were shot down by the Iron Dome.
In response to the attack and to Israel’s consistent warning that they will not allow Iran to establish positions of operation in which to attack Israel, the IDF launched full-scale operations about 2 hours after the Iranian rocket attack.
The Israeli attack took out 50 military targets, about 40 of which were Iranian positions. (Others were Syrian air defense systems activated to defend Iranian actions.) All 28 Israeli aircraft returned safely home and there were no Israeli casualties or damage.

Israel is taking care of business to keep its citizens safe and secure. Things are calm in Israel and, indeed, lots of joy and merriment abound in Jerusalem ahead of May 14 celebrations of Israeli statehood and the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.
We’re in a critical place in history, as we watch Bible prophecy come alive. God is in control, friends, and He will work out His plan.
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, “My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure.”
