A Moment of Silence

Last Thursday, Palestinian terrorists targeted and killed innocent Israeli civilians in cold blood in a series of attacks in southern Israel. Since then, Palestinian terror groups in Gaza have fired over one hundred and fifty rockets and mortars into Israel, killing and injuring civilians, and sending one million Israelis fleeing to bomb shelters.

The Israel Air Force responded in self defense, killing leaders and members of the terrorist group in the Gaza Strip which orchestrated Thursday's attack, as well as striking weapons production facilities.

Tikvah: Students for Israel mourns for the victims of the attacks, stands in solidarity with the Israeli people in their time of distress, and salutes the Israel Defense Forces for protecting the homeland of the Jewish people.
