lod protestIn the coastal town of Lod on Friday night, Arab gunfire wounded a five-year-old child as he was in a sukkah the same night a girl was shot in a sukkah north of Yerushalayim, Arutz Sheva reports.

Several gunshots were fired apparently by Arab assailants in Lod on Friday night, with one of them entering the balcony of the Shiloh family and hitting their five-year-old son Maoz, according to Yafit Haikin, a community leader and social worker in the coastal city.

The bullet caused a fracture to the young boy’s skull, and currently he is in intensive care following a complicated surgery.

“We aren’t prepared to live in a reality like this, and therefore we will go out in protest and read Psalms in front of the police station,” announced Haikin. “We must stop and demand the police to act and clear the city of illegal weapons.”

The protest began at 8:30 p.m. on Motzoei Shabbos in front of the police station.

  1. The Israeli government is criminally negligent in not protecting its citizens! There is a need of vigilant patrols and demand for massive security services through t the land. Eviction of Arabs from all of Eretz Israel is the real solution!
