(May 19, 2021 / JNS) To help communities and residents living on the front lines in southern Israel and the Gaza Envelope, which are constantly exposed to rocket and mortar fire, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL–JNF), in coordination with the Israeli Ministry of Defense, will be placing new portable bomb shelters in strategic locations and cities so residents are better protected, and have accessible and immediate protection.
The development will be made possible with KKL–JNF’s worldwide organizations and with the help of Jewish and Israel-supporting communities from around the world, who are already showing their support as Israel fights to defend itself from terror attacks and constant barrages fired from the Gaza Strip.
KKL–JNF will acquire about 100 new, modern, portable bomb shelters—each capable of protecting dozens of citizens—in the hopes of saving as many lives as possible.
Avraham Duvdevani, global chairman of the organization, said it is “of paramount importance to help, assist and protect residents during these sorts of emergencies, as it is important during calmer days as well. Through this acquisition, it is taking part in the national effort, supporting farmers, agriculture workers and civilians so that they are able to maintain their livelihood and stay safe.”
