Unyielding Progress: JFMM JNF Galilee Emergency Hospital Construction Continues Amidst today's terrorist Attacks

In a display of resilience, the construction of the JFMM JNF Galilee Emergency Hospital is proceeding with determination, even as the area faces ongoing threats. A recent missile attack by Hezbollah on Kiryat Shmona tragically resulted in the death of a 25-year-old man but fortunately did not impact the structural integrity of the Galilee Emergency Medical Center; one of the construction team members broke his leg while running to the bomb shelter. 

Early on Wednesday, the northern city of Kiryat Shmona became the target of a significant offensive, with Hezbollah firing a substantial number of rockets. The Israel Defense Forces reported that approximately 30 rockets were launched in this particular assault, with Hezbollah asserting that it had aimed dozens of projectiles not only at the city but also at a nearby military base.

Despite the aggressions, the Iron Dome air defense system successfully intercepted some of the incoming threats. However, a few rockets breached the city's defenses, causing both physical damage and loss of life, as confirmed by local authorities.

One of the rockets made a direct hit on an industrial structure, igniting a fire. Emergency response teams from the Fire and Rescue Services were promptly dispatched to the scene, where they managed to extinguish the blaze and rescue a man trapped beneath the debris. 

This incident underscores the volatile security situation in the region but also highlights the unwavering commitment to advancing healthcare infrastructure in the face of adversity. Once completed, the JFMM JNF Galilee Emergency Hospital promises to be a beacon of hope and healing for the community, embodying the spirit of perseverance that defines the region.
