Michael Adeayo Olayinka, aka Ruger, a rising star in Nigerian music, almost dodged an attack on Israel after his spectacular performance.
Last Saturday, Ruger performed a fantastic concert for his devoted fans in Tel Aviv City, Israel.
After hearing the disturbing news about the attack, the singer took to Instagram to reassure his devoted admirers of his safety.
Ruger stated that the storm began immediately after he and his team left Israel, identifying Tel Aviv as the storm’s focal point.
He passionately pleaded for global peace, extending his heartfelt thoughts, love, and prayers to the innocent bystanders caught in the crossfire. Ruger then implored his followers to join him in sending their prayers to Israel.
Ruger’s caption read,
“Israel is at war now and it’s very sad. It started as soon as I and my team took off from Tel Aviv to head back home. So guys !!! I really appreciate your concern I’m safe. But please we need peace in the world right now!!! We don’t want innocent people dying we just want to LIVE AND LOVE #prayforisrael. LOVE YOU O.”
Gun battles continued into the night as the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale onslaught against Israel on Saturday, firing thousands of rockets from Gaza and dispatching fighters to kill and capture troops and civilians.
Around 6:30 am (0330 GMT), the Islamist group launched the multi-pronged assault with thousands of rockets, some of which missed the Iron Dome defense system and struck buildings in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
In boats, motorized paragliders, and land vehicles, Hamas fighters broke through the perimeter fence enclosing Gaza and launched attacks on surrounding Israeli communities and military outposts, opening fire on civilians and bystanders.
