Nearly two months after the brutal terror attack in Elad on Independence Day, terrorism and security warnings in Judea-Samaria are on the decline.
One of the reasons may be because ‘Operation Breakwater’ was launched in Northern Samaria, waged to quash the wave of terrorism that started in March. Currently, there is no plan for a massive troop movement at this time.
IDF officials realize that the relative calm doesn’t mean terrorist forces lost their motivation to execute the type of attacks that would destabilize the current situation of relative quiet.
And although terrorist acts seem to have quieted somewhat the victims of terror attacks, even from years past, still struggle with immense trauma that often is only revealed much later.
That means that Israeli child terror victims still need help rehabilitating from the traumatic experiences that haunt them to this day. The organization at the forefront of this critical effort is the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund (SICF).
David Rubin founded SICF seventeen years ago. David, along with his young son, was himself a victim of a violent shooting attack by Muslim terrorists near his home in Shiloh, the town in Samaria, which was the first capital of ancient Israel.
Usually, it’s the physical trauma from terrorism that makes the news headlines. However, in many instances, psychological trauma can be just as harmful…if not worse. SICF provides a type of field hospital for those unseen, destabilizing wounds.
