Israel is under several threats of war. This has not been unusual since the establishment of the state in 1948. Miraculously, against enormous odds, Israel has always won through and stands stronger than ever today.
Only last week, the IDF ran simulation exercises under conditions of surprise, to train soldiers in the event of a multi-border war. Of major concern is the threat to Israel’s civilian population - a very soft target for enemy rockets. Protecting civilians from casualties could very well disrupt the IDF’s ability to deploy and defend. The Government's plan of action is to acquire more antimissile systems to enhance the country's defense and free up more soldiers to man the frontlines.
As an Israel Today reader and a civilian, you can stand with the hardworking young men and women in Israel’s military by providing a care package of encouragement. Just $36 will keep a soldier well-protected, even in harsh conditions, contributing to high morale in Israel's defense. Click here
