Israel has been facing a new wave of terrorist attacks from within the country, with 3 attacks occurring within a week, killing a total of 10 Israelis, and injuring dozen more.
Both attacks were carried out by Israeli Arabs who form a part of Israel’s intricate social tapestry. This coexistence is real and a wonderful part of the Israeli reality, and most of the Arab community in Israel condemns these terrible acts, however, there is still a small radical minority that tries to sow terror in our midst by carrying out horrendous attacks in broad daylight against innocent civilians.
The recent attacks were both carried out by Israeli Arabs that were heavily influenced by ISIS. This also means they have managed to influence and recruit individuals from the Arab community in Israel — a community that usually has very little to do with ISIS and the likes of them, and live alongside us as equal members of Israeli society.
This past week we’ve already experienced two attacks, and the security forces are warning we might see an escalation with more attempts, as the Muslim world enters its month of Ramadan, which is always a tense month here in Israel, precisely because of so many threats to destabilize our already delicate and volatile reality.
We know the enemy plots against God, and there are many attacks being planned. Israel needs your prayers to uncover the plans of the enemy and protect the nation from any further possible attacks.
Pray for God’s grace and protection for our nation during this challenging season!
