IDF soldiers recited "Birkat Hailanot," the blessing on blossoming fruit trees, on Thursday while operating in Nusirat in the Gaza Strip.

The blessing is recited once a year during the Jewish month of Nissan upon seeing blossoming fruit trees.

"'In Nissan, we were redeemed, and in Nissan, we will be redeemed in the future. We are here to stay and to uplift the spirits of those who left in recent days. The IDF is fighting and will fight until victory - until the end," the soldiers stated.

"We are here looking out from a rooftop in the central camps in Nusirat, IDF soldiers behind us are cutting down the enemy, one by one. We are above a small orchard, foreseeing Jewish children running and playing among the trees, we will return."
