Gaza Strip is controlled by Hamas and Islamic Jihad and they are coordinating policies and activities there. The aggression of the Islamic Jihad movement against Israel is said to be contained by Hamas. Islamic Jihad is trying to escalate conflict for fresh fighting but it is prevented by its ally. As Israeli soldiers were wounded during the recent clashes, the situation is tense and new reinforcements are set along the border with the Gaza Strip. Palestinian farmers in the area are forced to leave for fear of being injured or killed. Pray that God with His mightiness makes wars cease to the ends of the earth and breaks the bow and shatters the spear and burns the shields with fire, and stops the escalation of attacks by the Gaza Strip and Israel. Pray for the Palestinians to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and believe in His mighty deeds. They can be still and know that He is God exalted in their nation (The Bible, Psalm 46:9-10).
