*Today, Wednesday, is day 78 of the virtual Gaza ceasefire.
*Today is Gilad Shalit’s 801st day in Hamas captivity. (We are setting back the Gilad Shalit counter one day after the government announced Tuesday was day 800. YWN was counting the day he was taken captive but the official count begins the following day. In order to be in sync with the ‘official count,’ we have turned back the clock one day making today 801. May Hashem assist us in witnessing his release today!)
