Jerusalem in Hebrew means “City of Peace”
But Jerusalem has been destroyed and reborn many times over the 3000 years
For fighting for the Holy Land, I don’t know
How many wars have happened since ancient times
Jerusalem has been razed for 18 times
Israel has made every effort to recapture Jerusalem

That Jerusalem is the soul of Israel

Praising God defeating the enemy of Israeli
And there will be great celebrations in Jerusalem

In the circumstance of severe military inequality, Israel launched a preemptive air strike

June 6, Israel fully mastered the supremacy of the air
June 7 (Lyar 28th), Israel conquered Jerusalem, and after 19 years of separation of concrete walls and barbed wires, Jerusalem was reunified.
