Israel struck hard in Gaza recently, taking down terror cells inside a UN school. Additionally, the nation is on the cusp of a major leadership shakeup.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) recently struck a United Nations Relief & Works Agency (UNRWA) school that was being used as a base for Hamas terrorists. The IDF announced that it killed 9 terrorists in the attack, and Israeli government spokesman David Mencer said, “The school had terrorists who actually took part in the murderous attack of October the 7th.”

The fact that terrorists were hiding inside a UN-funded school is telling. What does this say about the United Nations, a globalist organization that has repeatedly demonstrated contempt toward Israel and bias toward Palestine?

IDF Chief Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari also stressed how hard Israel is working to avoid hurting civilians, noting that “our air force used precise munitions to target the three specific classrooms that the terrorists were hiding inside.” Despite this, many are covering the attack without addressing the Hamas terror activity at the school.

In addition, Israel is on the verge of a major change in its leadership. Benny Gantz, a member of Israel’s three-person war cabinet, is set to step down from the Israeli government today. He and his party have challenged Prime Minister Netanyahu to adopt six objectives for the war, promising to leave the government on June 8 if the objectives are not implemented.

According to The Jerusalem Post:

Gantz said on May 18 that his party would leave if Netanyahu did not adopt six objectives: Returning the hostages; demolishing Hamas and demilitarizing the Gaza Strip; providing a governing alternative in the Strip: returning residents of the North to their homes by September 1 and rehabilitating the western Negev; promoting normalization with Saudi Arabia; and adopting an outline for standardized national service in which all Israelis serve the country.

The recently proposed hostage deal with Hamas does meet some of Gantz’s demands, so it is unclear whether he will compromise and remain in the government. Either way, the situation necessitates prayer. We encourage intercessors to check out and prayer through our 21 Prayer Points for Gantz, Gallant, and Netanyahu.
