Israel In Your Community

Letter From The Israeli Chair Of The Partnership

Operation Protective Edge

Dear Friends,

During the summer holidays hundreds of thousands of Israeli students spend their vacation days on the beach, watching the World Cup games, going to summer camps and some even working to earn pocket money, like children all around the world. Not exactly so in Israel, where our neighbors, with whom we have strived to make peace for years, prefer that students from both sides will spend their summer vacations at war. During the past few weeks Hamas terrorists have fired hundreds of rockets at Israel's civilians, covering large parts of the country, leaving 5,000,000 people under the threat of the missile rockets. No other country lives under such a threat, and no country would accept such a threat.

Israelis, young and old, are robust and capable of showing strength without fear. All the citizens of Israel cherish our soldiers and all of the security forces, trusting their ability and courage. Israel is strong with our trust in G-d to help us face our enemies.

In the Hof Ashkelon region we are well organized and prepared for any threat. Emergency crews and support teams are available to the public day and night 24/7. The Council is organized and able to address and support each resident of our communities. We are determined to give our citizens the safety and security they deserve.

When rockets are fired from the Gaza Strip an alarm is triggered and broadcast, and all residents are required to enter the shelters or any protected space.
The "Iron Dome" (IDF's missile intercept system) protects the country by intercepting missiles and preventing injury to civilians.


Isaac Amar
