Over 120 Rockets and Mortar Shells Slam into Israel in One Weekend Alone


Over 120 rockets and mortars slammed into Israel during one recent weekend alone. Eshkol Regional Council Head Haim Yalin said, “We’ve been under attack for three days. The feeling is that we are in the midst of a real escalation.

“As far as we’re concerned, this is Cast Lead all over again. We are in a [state of ] emergency, even though the state has not declared an official emergency. We’ve been running around all day to calm local residents,” Yalin added.

“Everyone here is working so that we can cope with the situation.”

The Chabad Terror Victims Project (CTVP) staff and volunteers have mobilized to address this very difficult and frightening situation and have dispersed throughout the entire region. They are going to each community affected and visiting with the families, offering a variety of assistance as the families struggle to remain calm in the face of rocket attacks.
CTVP will remain in the area caring for these families under siege and doing everything possible to ensure that they are safe, comforted, and protected.
