Miracles occurred daily during Operation Protective Edge, the military offensive to stop the firing of rockets from Gaza. Here are some of the stories of how God protected the people of Israel.
Planned Rosh Hashanah attack
Israeli Security sources say that Hamas had a plan to attack kibbutzim near the Hamas tunnel exits this coming Rosh Hashanah in a coordinated attack with an invasion force of over 200 terrorists and an objective to kill or kidnap as many Israelis as possible.
The information comes from captured prisoners who have constructed this most horrifying picture. Security sources say that Hamas plan was “lowering the State of Israel to its knees.” Prime Minster Netanyahu was reported by Israeli newspaper Maariv, as saying the goal was to use dozens of Hamas tunnels simultaneously. Tunnels have been found and dug under many kibbutzim that surround Gaza. One tunnel was even found to have its exit right next to the entrance to the dining hall of a Kibbutz.
The coordinated attack would occupy the whole area and kill and/or kidnap as many Israeli civilians as possible, depending on circumstances. Abducted Israelis would be transferred via the tunnels to the Gaza Strip.
Divine Winds Shifted Tel Aviv Bound Rocket Out to Sea
An Israel Defense Forces Commander directing an Iron Dome missile defense battery during Israel’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas rocket fire has reportedly recounted a tale of what he claims to be divine intervention that saved Tel Aviv from certain disaster.
“A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers [a pair of Tel Aviv skyscrapers], the Kirya [Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon] or on the railroad tracks. Hundreds could have died.”
“We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.”
“Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that… sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’”
“I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”
‘He moved away 3 meters and that saved him’
Three meters and a Eucalyptus tree made the difference between life and death for IDF officer Yussuf, 43.
Nicknamed “Abba” (father) by his men, Yussuf safely fought in Gaza until early this week when he was sent to the Israeli side of the border in the Eshkol region for a short break.
On Monday, four soldiers called out to him from where they stood next to the food supplies.
“Come Abba, drink something cold.”
Yussuf sat with them, chatted, drank, and then “he got up, moved away just 3 meters, and that saved him. The mortar shell fell exactly where he sat,” his father Najib said on Thursday.
He speculated that a Eucalyptus tree adjacent to where Yussuf stood protected him from the brunt of the blast.
The God of Israel will always be with His people.
