The IDF shot down a Hezbollah drone that invaded Israel’s airspace from Lebanon. The drone was tracked by Israeli troops throughout the invasion. The IDF vowed to continue operating against all attempts by foreign terrorists to violate Israel’s aerial sovereignty.

Two IDF helicopter pilots died this week in a helicopter crash off the coast of Haifa. Among the dead was Lieutenant Colonel Erez Sachyani, Deputy Commander of the Ramat David Airbase. He was 38-years old and a married father of three. The second victim was Major Chen Fogel, a helicopter pilot who was 27 years old. May their memory be a blessing.

Hamas fired rockets inside Israel this week. In response, the IDF hit Hamas sites inside Gaza, including a rocket manufacturing site and military posts utilised for terrorist activity.

Finally, an Arab terrorist armed with a knife exited a vehicle and charged toward a bus stop where both civilians and IDF troops were waiting in Judea and Samaria. IDF forces at the scene neutralized the attacker.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of Israel’s allies worldwide who have demonstrated their support for the brave men and women of the IDF by donating to LIBI USA. These soldiers risk their lives day and night to ensure that the Jewish State remains strong and well protected. Here at LIBI, we strive to provide Israel’s troops with all of the welfare needs that the IDF is unable to offer.
