Despite the constant rocket fire from Gaza and the start of Operation Protective Edge, 300 teens from around the world decided to come to Israel and join the IDF.
Last week, they underwent their first military experience in which they learned about subjects ranging from field training to the values of the IDF. In the next few months, these young people will settle in their new home—the State of Israel. We salute them and wish them the best of luck!
Rocket strikes, tunnel attacks, human shields and manipulation of the facts – You can help the world see Hamas’ true face. Share our special website on 50 days of Operation Protective Edge.
Today is the 50th day of Operation Protective Edge. Our soldiers continue to stand strong, prepared to defend Israel from every threat. Terror will not stop us.
Last week, the UN published several maps showing the aftermath of Operation Protective Edge. The maps mark damaged buildings with red dots scattered throughout Gaza. But these maps tells only half the story: Hamas used many of these buildings – including houses, hospitals and schools – as sites to launch rockets and carry out other attacks.
In many cases, the IDF struck buildings in order to stop Hamas’ violence. This means that the red dots on the UN’s maps represent more than destruction. They show the many cases in which terrorists attacked Israel from heavily populated areas in Gaza.
Israel uses text messages, phone calls and leaflets to warn civilians before airstrikes. How many countries do that?
Even as Hamas fires from populated areas, we eliminate terror threats while minimizing civilian casualties in Gaza. We go to extraordinary lengths to keep Palestinian civilians away from harm. Find out how.
