7 Missiles Launched at Negev; 2 Strike Sderot; Miraculously No Lives Lost
The "gentlemen" to the left are Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, preparing to launch Kassam rockets at targets inside Israel. As reported here by Arutz Sheva Israel National News, terrorists launched 7 rockets into the Western Negev region of Israel today, two of which struck targets in the town of Sderot. Some of the results are shown at the right--a rocket smashed into a child's bedroom. Another rocket hit parked cars in a school parking lot. Miraculously, no lives were lost. The rocket that struck the home only lightly injured a woman in the house, while bystanders at the school parking lot were treated for shock.
The Psalmist wrote, "I say of the Lord, He is my refuge and fortress; my God in whom I trust." For the people of Sderot and the Negev, God has been their missile defense system, and his miraculous protection of them is openly revealed. Nonetheless, the Talmud advises, "Do not rely on a miracle," and the citizens of Sderot echo that sentiment, and ask their government, "How long can we rely on miracles?"
