Israel: Red Alert
Early this morning (Israel time), my iPhone alerted me over and over that rockets were hitting the northern part of Israel (Golan Heights). Here's what happened: Iranian military forces stationed in Syria invaded Israeli air space with an unmanned drone. This drone invasion was a massive breach of Israel’s sovereignty and a hostile act of aggression by Iran.
In response, Israel sent eight fighter jets into Syria to engage in a counterattack against the drone's command post. The Israeli jets came under anti-aircraft fire from Syrian forces while they flew over Syria. Israel succeeded in destroying their target, but in the process, one of Israel’s fighter jets was hit by Syrian fire and the two pilots ejected and escaped. However, both were injured and are currently in the hospital. One of the pilots is severely injured.
Israel’s response to this attack was an immediate counterattack of overwhelming force. In the strongest attack in 30 years, Israel destroyed 4 Syrian command posts and 8 Iranian command posts in Syria.
This morning’s breach was a blatant attempt by Iran to assert its dominance in the region and threaten Israel.
Pray for the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to continue His protection upon Israel and her people.
