In response, Israel launched an extensive retaliatory campaign, striking suspected Iranian bases throughout Syria for hours following the initial Iranian bombardment, an Israeli military spokesperson said, warning Syrian dictator Bashar Assad not to get involved.
Please pray that the LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, would protect all Israelis…IDF and civilian alike, from these attacks. Please pray that the enemy forces attacking Israel would be completely destroyed with no or minimal civilian casualties.
Standing strong for Israel,
Rescue me, Lord, from evildoers; protect me from the violent who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day. Ps 40:1-2
