The organization Friends of the IDF has produced a powerful video that honors IDF soldiers – the heroes of last year’s Operation Protective Edge.
As Hamas fired rockets at Israel’s citizens, the IDF fought valiantly to put an end to the brutal war last summer. Unfortunately, 67 soldiers gave their lives, leaving behind 131 bereaved families and a nation full of broken hearts.
In this video, you will meet some of the soldiers who protected Israel during Operation Protective Edge. They introduce themselves and they explain why they are fighting. How fortunate are the people of Israel to have such an army of pure souls protecting us. As we remember the past on “Yom Hazikaron,” Israel’s Memorial Day for fallen IDF soldiers and victims of terror, we look to the future with strength and determination. We are here and this is our land!
