Rocket and sniper attacks over the last four days in Israel. More below
Lebanese snipers pick off IDF soldiers inside Israel’s border
Israel has confirmed that a battalion commander was killed in clashes with Lebanese troops that also claimed the lives of two Lebanese soldiers and a newspaper reporter. The casualties occurred after Lebanese and Israeli troops exchanged fire at a border location that the Israeli Defense Forces described as being west of the Israeli town of Misgav Am…. the Lebanese troops shot inside Israel without provocation. He said Lebanese snipers shot Israeli officers standing more than 300 metres from the fence, as opposed to the soldiers removing bushes by the fence.
Sderot children and veteran’s rehabilitation center decimated by rockets
The upgraded Kassam rocket on Sderot Saturday night scored a direct hit on the ceiling of a children’s hydrotherapy rehabilitation center in the heart of Sderot’s Sapir College, bringing to nearly 400 the number aerial attacks launched from Gaza since the ceasefire which halted Israel’s Cast Lead counter-terror campaign in Gaza in January 2009.
Rockets hit Southern Israel/Jordanian border towns, Egypt denies
Reuters reported from Radio Israel that preliminary information by Israeli police revealed that at least three rockets fell on the Israeli southern port city of Eilat and nearby areas on Monday morning, causing no casualties. A GRAD missile fell in the southern Jordanian port city of Aqaba Monday morning, injuring four people, Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications Ali Al Ayed said.
Of course, when rockets hit Israel, the world blames Israel. When one of them misses and hits Jordan, the UN calls it terrorism and demands justice. All week, Israel suffers attacks and the UN looks the other way. Snipers pick off soldiers well behind the border fence. UN looks the other way. Childrens’ hospitals are destroyed, and UN looks the other way. But a resort in Jordan gets one accidental rocket wandering over the border, once? Ban Ki Moon is all over it.
Secretary-General condemns deadly rocket attack in southern Jordan

I hope the above map of Israel and the arrows showing rockets falling on the nation from top to bottom over the last 4 days makes an impact. The tiny, beleaguered nation, has the Almighty God behind her. O, if she will only look UP! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
“May peace be within your walls,
For the sake of my brothers and my friends,
For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
