YWN has a message from Agudath Israel of America
Events currently unfolding in Eretz Yisroel demand our tefillos on behalf of all our fellow Jews who are privileged to live on holy soil. Our rabbinic leadership has asked us to convey that simple, stark but urgent message to all of our constituents and supporters, indeed to all caring Jews.
As has been the practice in many shuls over past years, in response to the call of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, the recitation of Tehillim (Psalms) 83, 130 and 142 after Shacharis, followed by the tefila of Acheinu, is recommended. Indeed, our every prayer should include entreaties on behalf of our fellow Jews in Eretz Yisroel.
May our tefillos be received in mercy by Hakodosh Boroch Hu, and help usher in days of peace and security.

The latest operation in Gaza is Tzuk Eitan - Strong Cliff.
(Thanks to GezaGeza
for these gematrias.)
צוק איתן has the same gematria (657) as סוס ורכבו רמה בים.
If you take the last 3 Gaza Operations together:
you get a gematria of 1914, which equals the following verses:
כאיש אשר יעור משנתו
"Like a man who wakes up from his sleep" - it's a shame that Israeli leadership even goes to sleep between wars in the first place. Why have they not remained awake?
אחרית רשעים נכרתה
"The future of the wicked shall be cut off" - G-d willing.
קומה אלהים, ריבה ריבך; זכר חרפתך מני נבל, כל היום
"Arise, O God, plead Thine own cause; remember Thy reproach all the day at the hand of the base man." Please, Hashem, stop the Hillul Hashem of constant rocket fire against Your nation. Allow the IDF to make a Kiddush Hashem by cutting off the wicked Hamas from the face of the earth.
חסדי יהוה, עולם אשירה; לדר ודר, אודיע אמונתך בפי
"I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever; to all generations will I make known Thy faithfulness with my mouth." There were countless miracles in the first two of these operations. May these continue in the third. (Notice also that the verse that precedes this
is מַשְׂכִּיל, לְאֵיתָן הָאֶזְרָחִי - a reference to "Eitan".)
אדם, עשק בדם נפש: עד בור ינוס, אל יתמכו בו
"A man that is laden with the blood of any person shall hasten his steps unto the pit; none will support him." No comment necessary.
ובבקר אמר למלך ויתלו את מרדכי עליו
" and in the morning speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon" Zeresh's idea eventually backfired on her. May Hamas' weapons backfire on them.
