IDF Preparing For Possible Gaza Offensive

6

idf-offensiveThe IDF is preparing for a possible significant offensive in Gaza, a year and a half after Operation Pillar of Defense. Armored Corps brigades have been instructed to prepare for the possibility of being transferred to the Gaza Division, while the Air Force has deployed additional Iron Dome batteries.

More than 40 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel since the beginning of Operation Brother’s Keeper to find three the Israeli teenagers who were abducted some two weeks ago, Yedito reports.  24 of them fell inside Israel, out of which 11 were fired over the weekend. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted seven of the rockets.

The IDF believes the success of the Hamas terror cell in Chevron in heating up the Strip as well, encouraging rouge terror groups to open a second front against Israel.

  1. We need an Operation Justice Sincere. Ready the Torah friends and pray. Let the IDF do its style. Forces must be protected.

  2. Rabbi Avigdor Miller (a popular Chareidi Rabbi
    and author, born 1908 CE, died 2001 CE) delivered a free
    public lecture in the last year of his life, in which he taught that
    Jews should pray for the Israeli Army.
    I personally witnessed this; I was there.

    When a Jew recites Tefilat Shemoneh Esrei,
    he is permitted to add his own personal prayer requests
    in the middle of the final paragraph, which begins with
    Elokai Netzor Leshoni MeiRa.

    Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun
    in Teaneck NJ told me that I can recite it even on Shabbat
    and Yom Tov, because it is a communal tefillah,
    not a private bakashah.

  3. Do we really have to shlep up to the Country & back for “visiting day”? Do we have to shlep 10 cases of water? Is this really still in vogue?
