The ongoing threat of attacks from Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon causes Israeli families and communities to live in a perpetual state of high alert and anxiety. Every time a siren goes off—at all hours of the day or night—the people in harm’s way have only 10-15 seconds to run to a secure location. No one should have to live this way.
In northern Israel, where many fatalities occurred during the Second Lebanon War in 2006, there is a dire need to help protect border towns and other nearby communities. Today, Hezbollah forces in Lebanon are reported to have more than 150,000 rockets and missiles aimed at Israel.
It is equally important to safeguard those living in southern Israel near the border with Gaza. From there, Hamas terrorists have been firing rockets and missiles for years, and their range, arsenal and accuracy are only intensifying. In 2021, the world witnessed Hamas fire over 4,000 rockets from the Gaza Strip toward Israel.
