Resources on Operation Breaking Dawn

A message from Bob Feferman
Community Relations Director, The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley

On Friday, Israel launched Operation Breaking Dawn to defend Israeli civilians from imminent attacks from Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Iranian backed terror organization based in Gaza. More than 1,000 rockets were launched at Israeli civilians. As many as 20% of the rockets fell short, landed in Gaza, and some killed Palestinian civilians. A cease-fire is now in effect. In the meantime, below are links to reports and analysis from the Israeli media, Israel Defense Forces and Ministry of Foreign Affairs that provide analysis and context.
