  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp.

A tragedy occurred early this morning at the Erez border crossing. An Israeli man was shot and killed by guards and IDF soldiers when he tried to climb over the security fence separating Israel from Gaza.

The man, who is in his 30's, drove up to the Erez crossing at approximately 2:00 in the morning. He parked his car, and then began to run towards the border fence.

The man was detected by an observation camera as he approached the border, and security guards together with IDF soldiers on patrol called out to the man to halt. When the man did not heed their warnings, several shots were fired in his direction. As a result, the man was killed. The tragic incident is being investigated by the Lachish police force.

An individual has informed the security forces that the man who was killed received psychiatric treatment at the Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon. Apparently, the man was mentally instable. That claim is being investigated by the police.
