Israeli shekel among world’s strongest currency: Israel Update

The spiritual leader of the Druze community in Israel, Shaykh Muwaffak Tarīf, said that the Druze expect the IDF to set a red line to the Nusra Front in the Syrian Druze village of Hader after a terror attack there claimed the lives of 18 people and wounded many others. "The Nusra Front took over several hills near the village and started shooting indiscriminately. The Nusra Front is a terror organization. At the end of the day, it will aim its guns at us, the state (of Israel)," Tarif said. "We conveyed to the prime minister, the defense minister, the IDF chief and the GOC Northern Command that to us, this is a red line, and Israel must stand beside the Druze and protect this village, and not let the Nusra Front conquer it and slaughter its people."  More >
