Get the Children Away From the Front Lines
1. The Background
Sirens warning of incoming rockets blared through the night in southern Israel. An anti-tank missile blew up an Israeli bus, seriously wounding a 19-year-old soldier. Then, a 40-year-old man was killed after a house was hit by a rocket in the southern Israeli town Ashkelon. Two women who were in the same building at the time of the incident are said to be in critical condition.
Nearly 400 rockets were fired at Israeli civilians in what was the largest single-day total of fired rockets EVER, and one of the most serious rounds of fighting since the devastating 2014 Gaza war.
2. The Goal
Get the children away from the front lines.
