Jewish Woman Rescued Via Gaza Smuggling Tunnel by Yad L’Achim

In another amazing feat by Yad L’Achim, an organization whose volunteers continue to display mesirus nefesh on behalf of Am Yisrael, a Jewish woman was smuggled from Egypt to Hamas-controlled Gaza on Tuesday afternoon via a smuggling tunnel from Rafiach, with the rescuer and victim making their way to Erez Crossing, into the hands of Israeli authorities.

The woman was taken to a police facility, questioned at length, and then released to Yad L’Achim custody, and is holed up in a hidden location.

According to a report, breaking the story, the story is a familiar one, about a Jewish woman who married an Arab, living in Egypt. Her life was one of abuse until she could no longer endure; contacting her sister in Israel, who in turn contacted Yad L’Achim.

Yad L’Achim officials, who are no strangers to dangerous missions, realized the unique complexities of this case, entering Egypt and then Gaza, and hired the services of ‘specialists’ for this mission. The remaining details remain classified for the protection of all involved as well as future rescue missions.
