We stand with the people of Israel in resisting the criminal rocket attacks by Hamas

Hamas deliberately fires its rockets from homes, mosques, schools and other civilian sites. The picture shows a rocket launcher mounted on the minaret of a mosque.

At the last count more than 500 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza.

Hamas are doubly war criminals. First because they target Israeli civilians, and second because they deliberately endanger their own civilians.

We pray for the safety of the Israeli people and stand with them in their resistance to terrorism.
