RIP Elie Wiesel 1928-2016, survived 87 years

Ik bezweer jullie om nooit te zwijgen, wanneer en waar ook maar menselijke wezens lijden en vernedering moeten ondergaan. We moeten altijd partij kiezen. Een neutrale opstelling zal alleen maar de verdrukker in de kaart spelen, nooit het slachtoffer helpen. Door het zwijgen er toe te doen zul je de verdrukkers aanmoedigen en nooit degenen die verdrukt worden.' ( Elie Wiesel)

May his memory be a blessing!

Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor, Nobel Peace prize winner, dies aged 87

Rocket fired from Gaza hits vacant Israeli preschool

A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip on Friday night exploded outside a preschool in the border town of Sderot, causing damage to the property. There were no direct casualties in the attack.

An earlier rocket exploded in an open area in the Sha’ar HaNegev region, causing no damage. The launches set off warning sirens throughout Sderot as well as other communities in the area.

Residents then reported hearing two loud explosions. Channel 2 News said several people in the vicinity of the Sderot impact site suffered from shock.

It was the first rocket attack reported in June. Earlier in the month Hamas test-fired dozens of short-range rockets in Gaza, with Israeli sources estimating that at least 30 projectiles were launched.

Jewish Father murdered in front of his children in Har Hevron shooting

One person was killed and three others wounded in a shooting attack at the Adorayim Junction south of Hevron in Judea.

The fatality has been identified as 40-year-old Michael "Micki" Marc from the nearby town of Otniel, who was traveling in his car with his family when it was targeted. His wife Chavi was seriously wounded in the attack, and was evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body.

Two other family members were also wounded in the attack. Paramedics say in addition to the mother of the family, they treated a 13-year-old girl in moderate-to-serious condition suffering from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and a 15-year-old boy who was lightly wounded, presumably from the crash.

According to initial reports, a "Kia" model car overtook the family as they drove along Route 60 and opened fire, striking both parents and causing the car to overturn. As many as 20 shots were fired at the car, investigators say.

The victims are a well-known family from the area, who live close to another family from Otniel struck by a deadly terrorist attack during the latest wave of Arab terror.

IDF forces responded quickly and are currently pursuing the terrorists who carried out the attack.
