Hamas has launched over 1,200 rockets into Israel since the beginning of "Operation Protective Edge."  These 
   rockets are fired randomly across civilian areas from Beersheva to Jerusalem to Modi'in to Tel Aviv to Haifa and 
   areas in between. Southern Israel, nearest Gaza, has been hardest hit.


We Stand With Israel

Well over a thousand rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel by Hamas. Although many have been intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system, many have landed randomly among Israel’s civilian population as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

We support Israel’s right to defend its citizens, as we would expect our government to defend us. Our thoughts are with the people of Israel, and we hope they can return to their normal, peaceful lives soon. 

We pray for peace everywhere.
