The brother of a security guard who was critically wounded in a brutal Palestinian axe attack appealed to the public to pray on his behalf.

Tragedy is nothing new to this family – one of many in Israel whose lives have been turned upside down by terrorist attacks.

The elder brother of the family was attacked and stabbed 11 times during the Second Intifada that took place from 2000-2005, and claimed the lives of more than a thousand Israelis.

The man said the whole family is gathered at his brother’s bedside praying for a recovery.

Watch this touching video and join us in praying for the speedy recovery of Tzvika Ben Batya and protection for all those standing on guard of our homeland.
