Israeli warplanes have carried out fresh strikes on the Gaza Strip in yet another act of aggression against the besieged Palestinian coastal territory. The airstrikes targeted residential buildings north of the city of Beit Hanun. Israeli tanks also fired shell into the territory. There are no immediate reports of casualties. Tel Aviv says the airstrikes hit sites belonging to the Palestinian resistance group, Hamas. It says the attacks were in response to rockets fired from Gaza. The besieged enclave has been under Tel Aviv’s all-out siege since 2007. Israel has also launched several wars on the territory over the past years. The last war on Gaza in the summer of 2014 killed thousands of people, most of them women and children.
- Wilderness means desert.
- Numbers 1:19
As the Lord commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.
[ Census of the Levites Commanded ] Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying:
[ The Second Passover ] Now the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying:
And the children of Israel set out from the wilderness of Sinai on their journeys; then the cloud settled down in the wilderness of Paran.
And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness.
Revelation 12:3-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
