(JNS.org) The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) has sent mobile bomb shelters to protect residents of southern Israel amid the escalating rocket fire by terrorists in Gaza.
“The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is committed to helping those Israeli communities under greatest threat to find shelter and weather the storm,” David Parsons, ICEJ media director, told JNS.org. “We have already sprung into action by placing two new mobile bomb shelters in [kibbutz] Kfar Aza along the Gaza border.”
The Christian Zionist organization said it was contacted by a former Knesset member from Kfar Aza who appealed to the ICEJ for help after the kibbutz was hit by repeated rocket attacks, which included the sounding of five rocket sirens when residents were eating breakfast in a dining hall and did not have time to reach a bomb shelter.
At the same time, the ICEJ has also launched an appeal to Christians through its “Israel in Crisis” fund, to assist the Israeli communities impacted by rocket attacks.
“Christians worldwide are answering our urgent appeal for funds to meet the growing crisis wherever we can,” Parsons said.
