Soldiers and civilians in Israel are for the most part extremely disappointed with the decision of the government to implement cease fire before time.
PM Netanyahu declared that the established goals of diminishing the Hamas power has been achieved however both the public and the military were ready for a much more thorough operation to defeat and uproot the Hamas altogether. Most government buildings were indeed destroyed, 180 dead in Gaza, 900 wounded, and out of 10000 Hamas has “only” 5000 rockets left.
However, Palestinian Prime Minister Haniyeh declared victory and that Hamas won public recognition. On top of it he stated that Pillar of Cloud operation is a wonderful bridge for the real purpose which is the conquest of Jerusalem and all “their” land. It looks that in spite of all their hits (1500 air force hits over Gaza) they are actually very encouraged by the outcome while most of the Israeli citizens are discouraged, very unhappy about this.
PM Netanyahu states that if the cease fire will be broken by Hamas, Israel will be ready for a more radical operation including the takeover of Gaza (implied by the PM but mentioned by the media)
Israel lost 6 people (2 soldiers and 4 civilians) and 450 wounded. Iron Dome managed to pre- explode 450 rockets preventing much damage and loss of life.
We shall continue praying until all of Israel is saved and established in its Land. For sure His promises will be kept!
Until January 22 Israel is in a race for new elections! Let us pray for a leader after YHVH’s (Gods) own heart!
Thank you and bless you for keeping your prayers flowing for Israel as requested in Isaiah 62:1,6,7
His Kingdom come and will be done in Israel in Yeshua’s name!
“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent” Isaiah 62;1
