IDF Soldier Needs Prayers for Recovery

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Doctors are becoming increasingly concerned about one of the two IDF soldiers who suffered shrapnel wounds in Thursday’s rocket attack on the Eshkol Regional Council district.

The soldier, Mordechai Yamin, was admitted in moderate-to-serious condition at Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva, has now been moved to the Intensive Care Unit and is listed in serious-to-critical condition.

Surgeons worked through the night to remove fragments from his body but a sliver of shrapnel remains in his brain and doctors are hesitant to remove it due to the danger involved.

The public is asked to pray for the full and speedy recovery of Mordechai ben (son of) Bracha Yehudit.

Farmers: Tomato Prices Doubled Due to Gaza War

Monday, November 26th, 2012

The Farmers Union says that the recent doubling of tomato prices is due to rocket attacks from Gaza leading up to and during Operation Pillar of Defense.

In a report by Globes online business magazine, the farmers’ organization said that tomato growres in the south had difficulty reaping their tomatoes or tending their fields, leading to significant crop losses.  Farmers in the Eshkol region produce 70% of Israel’s tomatoes.
