Israel has suffered the first causality since Operation Protective Edge began. An Israeli civilian who came to distribute food to the soldiers stationed along the Gazan border was hit by a mortar shell fired at him. He was mortally wounded in the rocket fire. Magen David Adom performed CPR on him, but to no avail. They were forced to declare him dead. Another person was slightly injured as a result of the shrapnel and was evacuated for medical treatment at Barzilai Hospital.
Father...my prayers go up to Israel! I pray that you give them the strength and the resolution to finish this! ing:
Father, we sit here, watching eternity unfold, knowing Your hand is on this. Lord, please let this be done fast so that lives are spared. Lives that haven't heard of Your sacrifice yet. Lord, let them be reached with the gospel so that the Comforter can work in them.
Oh Father, our hearts are broken and we stand in intercessory prayer for the safety of Your people, both mentally and physically. Lord, be merciful. In Jesus Name we pray, amen.
