I hadn’t intended to post anything tonight, but this is urgent. I ask you all to pray for the recovery of seven-year-old Orel Elazar, critically wounded in the head by a piece of shrapnel from a Grad rocket fired from Hamasland, which landed on a main road in Beersheba yesterday (Thursday), wounding six people. Orel’s mother, Angela, who was driving when the air-raid sirens went off, stopped the car and got out, in accordance with standing Civil Defence instructions. She and little Orel lay on the ground and Angela tried to shield him with her body. The first rocket left them shaken but physically unharmed but with the second missile, their luck ran out and a piece of shrapnel pierced the little boy’s head. Now he is in critical condition in the children’s Intensive Care Unit in Soroka Hospital, fighting for his life. By the time any of you read this post, it may even be too late. I pray not…Please join your prayers to mine.
Orel with his mother and uncle, in happier times.
