[Field Story] Netanyahu threatens retaliation: Iran is behind attacks on Israelis

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of being behind recent attacks targeting Israelis in the Palestinian West Bank, Reuters reported on the 21st (local time).

“We are in the middle of a terrorist attack that was orchestrated, directed and funded by Iran and its satellite states,” Netanyahu said in a broadcasted speech.

He added that Israel would "take action, near and far, to retaliate against the attackers and those who sent them."

Earlier in the day, a shooting occurred targeting Israelis in the West Bank, killing one and injuring another.

An armed gunman open fired at a vehicle that was moving on a highway, killing a woman in her 40s and seriously injuring the driver, a man in his 40s.

The Associated Press reported that the shooting was believed to have been carried out by Palestinians.


Also, on the 19th of this month, a 60-year-old Israeli man and his 28-year-old son were killed in an indiscriminate shooting by gunmen in Huwara, north of the West Bank.

Tensions later escalated when residents of nearby Jewish settlements entered Palestinian villages and carried out retaliatory violence.

In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me!
Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me (Psalms 31:1-2)

A few days ago, a shooting occurred targeting Israelis in the West Bank, a Palestinian autonomous region in Israel, killing one person and seriously wounding another.

In response, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said Israel was in the middle of a terrorist attack and warned of retaliatory measures against Iran, which is believed to be behind it.

God, please have mercy upon the Jews who were scattered all over the world and returned to the mainland to rebuild the country, but are still living in tension every day due to hostility and attacks from neighbouring countries.

Those who have no place to turn to and no one to help them, who must protect themselves only with their own strength, and who must survive all attacks and retaliation with their own strength, God would you once again become a solid rock and a saving fortress for them.

Although in the eyes of the world, there are reasons why Palestine and all Islamic countries, including Iran, can only resent Israel, but God's plan and will, which is superior to all these things, cover the eyes of Muslims.

May you set free all those who were suffering in the unresolved circle of resentment, so that the vengeance and bloodshed that has continued between Israel and Islamic countries will now cease.

Let Israel see the Lord who accomplishes salvation in a great and unimaginable way, so that Israel can become a people who realize that it is only the Lord and His son Yeshua who can rule Israel, not themselves or anyone else.

Now, we declare that Yeshua's bloodshed and the power of the Lamb that overcame death on the cross have covered Israel. Lord would you be the God of Israel and the Abba Father of Israel.
