Chaim begins by giving a brief rundown of some of the things he’s been dealing with lately including having rockets shot at him and glass shards on the ground in the place where he almost dove to take cover from the rockets. He says there’s danger everywhere, including from the very buildings they’re walking around which could easily collapse at any moment.
But he says “our spirits are high” despite all the danger. He mentions that the IDF has entered Hamas headquarters (aka Shifa Hospital in Gaza City) trying to save the civilians who are there even as they battle Hamas terrorists who are using the facility for their own purposes. The scenes showing all the weapons and military gear that have been found in the hospital remind us that it is indeed being used as a military outpost by Hamas.
He mentions though, that although it’s a very dangerous situation, none of the soldiers under his command have been killed or wounded. He says he keeps a Book of Psalms close to him as he rides into battle on his Humvee, and he quotes one Psalm he found earlier in the day; Psalms 44:5-8; Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever. Selah
He says this is very encouraging for him and he hopes it’s an encouragement for his viewers as well.
