Within the last few hours, the IDF announced air strikes on at least 100 Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip overnight. Current reports are that at least ten rockets were fired from Gaza toward Israel (two toward Tel Aviv) on Thursday and Friday. Iron Dome intercepted at least six of those rockets, a few landed in open areas, and one failed to clear the border into Israel.

More importantly, please pray for wisdom on the part of Israeli leaders. Iranian-backed Hamas is attempting to drag Israel into war in the Gaza Strip, likely as a distraction from the more real and present danger of Iran and their proxies on the Syrian border with Israel. Pray that PM Netanyahu, his advisers and military staff will be discerning as they determine the proper course of action.
