The last operation in the Gaza Strip - "Guardian of the Walls" is the latest demonstration of the crucial need for bomb shelters, especially where construction is dated and unfit for Israel's modern security needs.
To help communities and residents living on the front lines in Southern Israel
and the Gaza Envelope, who are constantly exposed to rocket and mortar fire - KKL-JNF, in coordination with the Israeli Ministry of Defense will be placing new portable bomb shelters in strategic locations and cities, so that residents are better protected and have accessible and immediate protection.
This move will be made possible with KKL-JNF’s worldwide organizations and with the help of Jewish and Israel-supporting communities from around the world, who are already showing their immense love and support as Israel fights to defend itself from terror attacks and constant barrages, fired from the Gaza Strip.
KKL-JNF World Chairman, Avraham Duvdevani: "KKL-JNF considers it of paramount importance to help, assist, and protect the residents of the Gaza Envelope during these sorts of emergencies, as it is important during calmer days. KKL-JNF, through this acquisition - is taking part in the national effort, supporting farmers, Agriculture workers and civilians of the Gaza Envelope and Southern Israel, so that they are able to maintain their livelihood and stay safe."
