Over the past several years terror attacks in Gush Etzion have been on the upswing. We have had a slew of shootings, stabbings, and car-ramming attempts on a regular basis. Unfortunately some of those attacks have resulted in the loss of innocent lives.
At the same time motorists have been targeted in rock and firebomb attacks on a nearly daily basis on the roads both in Eastern and Western Gush Etzion.
This reality cannot continue!
It is time to assist in providing safety and security for the residents of our communities.
The 22 communities in Gush Etzion are spread out over a vast area. Each community must be supplied with necessary equipment to be utilized by our volunteer first-response units in times of emergency until the army and other security forces arrive.
As a result, we are turning to our friends and supporters and asking for assistance in helping us purchase the essential security items to keep our residents safe.
Please help us keep Gush Etzion safe!
