According to history, many disastrous events have occurred on Tish’a B’Av, also called the Ninth of Av, the saddest day in Jewish history. Some of those events are:
• The bad report brought by the spies from the promised land.
• The destruction of the first and second Temples.
• Numerous wars have started on this date.
• Numerous bombings and killing of Jews have happened on this date.

The last four years have seen the following events:
• Av 9, 2019 – August 11th, 2019. Palestinian Muslims shout at Israeli security forces (unseen) in the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. At least five vehicles were damaged in attacks by Jerusalem Arabs hurling stones between the start of Tisha B’Av, which began with the fall of darkness on Saturday evening, and Sunday at 12 noon. An 18-year-old Jewish boy was seriously wounded Sunday morning when he was attacked by an Arab terrorist on Hagai Street in Jerusalem.

• Av 9, 2020 – July 30th, 2020. Protests against the Israeli government due to the Covid-19 lock-downs continue unabated. Hamas views Israel’s intentions to extend its sovereignty over parts of the Jordan Valley, Judea and Samaria as a declaration of war.

• Av 9, 2021 – July 18, 2021. Tish’a B’av was marked by unseasonable heat. Violent Arabs began to confront police before dawn in order to prevent Jews from ascending to the Temple Mount. The Arabs barricaded themselves into the compound in an attempt to prevent the police from entering and pelted police with rocks and stones. The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha began on Monday evening, July 19, 2021 and Jews were banned from the Temple Mount until Sunday, July 25th. A US left-wing anti-Israel group, Jewish Voice for Peace, observed Tish’a B’av, by “praying” for the destruction of modern Israel.

• Av 9, 2022 AD – August 7th, 2022. Once again Israel was under attack, with an estimated 950 rockets raining down from Gaza into Israel starting on Friday, August 5th. The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) claimed responsibility for firing the rockets, and announced that “this is an open campaign and not limited only to the Gaza Strip.” The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) responded with “a targeted campaign against the Palestinian Islamic Jihad” during which three of the PIJ leaders were killed: Bilal Nimr Abu Amsha, Khaled Mansour, and Taysir Al-Jabari, as were commanders Khalil al-Bahtini and Abdullah Kadoum. Additionally, the IDF responded with dozens of strikes across the Gaza Strip striking several PIJ military sites and buildings, including eleven strikes on rocket launch sites. The latest wave of rocket attacks took place just after an Egyptian brokered cease fire was declared.
