ICEJ Life-Vest Saves Israeli Policeman in Knife Attack

On Sunday, a volunteer in the Israeli police force was attacked by a terrorist who tried to stab him with a knife.The policeman was wearing one of the ICEJ-sponsored vests, which saved his life. "The vest protected me,” he told paramedics on the scene. As a result, they only needed to treat a wound in his hand.

The wounded policeman was a volunteer patrolling the streets and, until last week, he did so without the life-saving vest. But a few days ago, he received a life-vest from the ICEJ, and yesterday it saved his life! Praise the Lord!

Last month, the ICEJ was approached by the Jerusalem Municipality with a request to sponsor life-saving vests for their personnel. Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters around the globe, the ICEJ was able to quickly respond and purchase a large number of these vests for the servicemen and women who patrol the streets of Jerusalem.

The ICEJ is at work providing support services to terror victims throughout Israel. The ICEJ-sponsored life-vests are provided to those who watch out for the safety of Israelis and tourists in the streets, such as security guards on trains, in parks and around the important tourist sites in Jerusalem.

By partnering with the ICEJ to protect the residents of Jerusalem, you can show the Israeli people that Christians are concerned about their safety. When Israel is in need, the ICEJ is among the first to help!

You can have an impact on the Israeli society at this difficult time. Partner with us and donate to our Israel in Crisis Fund today.
