I am sure you all are aware by now of the situation going on in Gaza and the Western Negev. Saturday marked the start of “Operation Cast Lead,” the name o the operation where the IDF is taking initiative and protecting the citizens of Sderot, Ashkelon and other Western Negev communities and kibbutzim.
December 19 marked the end of the 6-month ceasefire between Israel and Gaza. Two days later, 84 rockets and mortars were shot from Gaza to the above areas. No other country in the world would stand-by as its citizens are targeted on such a scale. Israel must protect its people.
To better understand the situation, we leave you with this article, “What would you do?” written by Lorne Gunter for the National Post.
