Security Updates


Wednesday, July 25, 2018

“Preliminary reports indicate that two missiles (or perhaps one that split apart) landed in the Sea of Galilee earlier today (Wednesday).  This follows the downing of a drone north of the Sea of Galilee two days ago and downing of a Syrian jet yesterday, also to the north of the Sea of Galilee along the Syrian border.  All three incidents are spillovers from a substantial increase in fighting between Syrian government forces and various rebel groups along the Israel-Syria border.  There are no indications that these incursions were purposeful or directed at sites within Israel and no special precautions are being taken by Israelis or others living in the area.   

The BYU/JC students will conclude their stay in the Galilee tomorrow (Thursday) morning and will be traveling west to Acre, Haifa and Caesarea before returning to the Center tomorrow night via Tel Aviv.”
