January 2018 Project: Special-Needs Israeli Children
Terrorists target children!
Islamic terrorists who cover their faces and hide in Mosques and other politically sensitive locations, target Israeli children─where ever they find them. We have read for years about the school bus, pizzeria, bus stop, shopping center and other attacks in the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.
The latest and the most unthinkable attack took place in Samaria at the end of November. A group of twenty-five boys with two adults from Migdalim were on a planned hiking trip that was approved by the IDF. It was the boys’ private bar mitzvah trip. Suddenly, they saw dozens of Arab young men who began attacking the hikers with stones in a planned ambush.
An Arab mob targeting Jewish hikers in Samaria After a struggle, the hikers managed to run into a cave in an attempt to hide until the army arrives. When the Arab mob tried to force their way into the cave to lynch the boys, they were met with warning shots. The terrorist returned fire along with rocks. At the end, the army rescued the hikers and medics took care of the wounded hikers and terrorists as well. The group was hiking far from Arab villages, however, terror attacks happen everywhere and anytime. Children who have experienced an attack such as this need time to recover. For a few of them, the trauma is too much to overcome. As Israel has suffered from thousands of terror and rocket attacks, there are also hundreds of traumatized children. Join us to assist them and their families. Thank you so much!
