An explosion rocked a Jerusalem bus stop Wednesday afternoon, killing an elderly woman, wounding more than thirty, and shattering the calm that had
prevailed in the city. Earlier Wednesday, terrorists fired two Katyusha rockets from Gaza toward the southern city of Be’er Sheva and another toward
the port city of Ashdod. One man was treated for light injuries, and multiple others were treated for shock. The day’s events are part of a dramatic
escalation over the past couple of weeks, with the horrific murder of a young family asleep in their beds in Itamar last week and dozens of Qassam
rockets raining down on the Western Negev farming communities and towns in recent days.
The Jewish Agency stands ready to assist those affected by these attacks through our Fund for the Victims of Terror. The fund, which focuses on
providing direct financial assistance to victims and their families, helps cover medical treatment, psychological care, and general welfare assistance to
those affected by terror, in order to aid the slow process of healing and recovery.
The Fund for the Victims of Terror is in dire need of replenishment. Funds have been dwindling of late, and as today’s events have sadly demonstrated,
the need to provide assistance to victims of terror remains critical as ever.
