More than 30,000 people have fled from Russia and Ukraine to Israel in the past six months. Most of them are Jews.

For those who came from Ukraine, the conflict in the Gaza Strip brings back haunting memories.

“Here’s an email we received: ‘I’m watching the news, and it’s scary. In general, I’m not sure. What should I do? I don’t feel comfortable in this situation. To be home in Ukraine was not as frightening as being in this foreign country of Israel,’” Uncharted Ministries co-founder Tom Doyle says.

“Here is a Ukrainian that immigrated to Israel, [going] from the frontlines of that war to the frontlines of the Gaza war.”

Earlier this month, Israeli air strikes hit several targets in the Gaza Strip. In response, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group fired more than a thousand rockets toward Israel.
