A special update from Keren Hayesod-UIA

This is a special announcement regarding a state of emergency all across Israel - Operation "Swords of Iron”.

IDF: “The IDF declared a state of alert for war. In the last hours, the Hamas terrorist organisation had begun a massive shooting of rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory, and terrorists infiltrated into Israeli territory in a number of different locations. Civilians in the southern and central areas are required to stay next to shelters and, in the area surrounding the Gaza Strip, inside shelters. The Chief of the General staff is currently conducting a situational assessment and approves plans for the continuation of the IDF activity.”

The Hamas terrorist organisation is the sovereign in the Gaza Strip and is responsible for this attack. It will face the consequences and responsibility for these events. As always, we at Keren Hayesod-UIA will act responsibly and give you only verified and formal information, but what is clear is that Israeli citizens are under direct attack at these moments. 

We at Keren Hayesod-UIA are monitoring the situation closely . Stay tuned for further updates from your local campaign.
