On the 7th of October 2023, Israel, a place of profound spiritual significance, faced a grave crisis as it was subjected to a relentless assault. Over 5000 rockets were launched, targeting the Holy Land, resulting in the tragic loss of thousands of innocent lives, with hundreds remaining in captivity. Churches from around the world are playing a pivotal role in offering solidarity, fervent prayers, and support to the distressed citizens in the face of the grim and catastrophic circumstances caused by this tragic conflict.
Since the outbreak of the hostilities in Israel, several church communities have expressed deep concern and have been actively engaged in aiding the vulnerable citizens affected by the conflict. This compassionate response is accompanied by an impassioned call for peace negotiations and dialogues to bring an end to the war.
