There are reports that the Baha’i gardens on Mount Carmel have been hit. Thankfully there were no casualties.

Nothing official has come from either the Universal House of Justice (internal) nor the Baha’i News Service (external). The latest public news release is about a Baha’i school in Tonga.

In any case, every Baha’i living and serving in Haifa is assumed to be in bunkers waiting this out. Our prayers and thoughts go to them and everyone else in harms way. May God’s hand protect them.
