The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem’s aid director, Nicole Yoder, presented a mobile firefighting trailer Sunday to the Eshkol Regional Council to aid Gaza border communities combating the wave of arson from the Gaza Strip.
The NIS 50,000 system, bought with donations from supporters from across the world, is the first of several trailers the ICEJ is purchasing. Hitched to a car, the mobile system facilitates a quick response to fires started by incendiary kites and balloons.
The ICEJ has repeatedly provided emergency aid to Israeli Jews and Bedouin living near the Gaza Strip and in the Negev. In 2014, during Operation Protective Edge, the charity purchased dozens of shelters for the region.
