Shalom and welcome!
I invite you to explore the website and learn about Israel, the Embassy and the special relations between our peoples.

Both terrorist organizations view jihad and suicide attacks as primary tools. Both terrorist organizations persecute and oppress non-Muslim minorities. Both organizations execute people who are suspected of supporting their opponents.
The main objective of Operation Protective Edge is to re-establish stability for the citizens of Israel. Israel cannot accept a reality in which millions of its citizens are subject to the whims of radical Islamic terrorist organizations.
Four IDF soldiers were killed early Monday morning by Hamas gunmen who emerged from a tunnel dug from Gaza into Israel near Kibbutz Nir Am. Five more were killed fighting terrorists in Gaza.
During Operation Protective Edge, UNRWA announced that 20 rockets were discovered hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. This case of placing rockets in an UNRWA school was not the first incident of its kind in Gaza.
Despite the constant rocket fire into Israel, the Kerem Shalom crossing remains open during Operation Protective Edge, providing food and essential supplies for the residents of the Gaza Strip.
