CAMERA Emergency Briefing: Israel Under Attack
Tricia Miller, Ph.D. and Dexter Van Zile
Dear Christian Leader,
The barrage of missiles fired on Israel from Gaza that began this past Monday as Israelis celebrated Jerusalem Day has intensified exponentially. As of this writing, over 1,300 rockets have been sent by Hamas terrorists towards Israeli cities and towns from the Gaza border to Tel Aviv and beyond. This picture from the Israeli Defense Forces shows the range and density of the missiles shot in the last two days.
Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system successfully destroyed the majority of those rockets. However, due to the sheer volume and frequency of incoming missiles, many of them made direct hits on homes, vehicles, and kindergartens, resulting in a number of deaths and even more wounded.

In addition to rocket attacks from without, Israeli citizens are in danger from Arab riots and lynch attempts in cities from Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv, to Lod, and as far north as Acco. This violence from within has resulted in serious injuries and the destruction of property and synagogues.
In the central city of Lod, widespread Arab rioting on Tuesday included the torching of synagogues, shops and cars. Lod's mayor, Yair Revivo, said City Hall and a local museum were also attacked. He compared what is currently happening in Lod to the Nazi Kristallnacht pogrom of November 1938, during which hundreds of synagogues and Jewish institutions throughout Germany, Austria, and the Sudetenland were burned and destroyed.
