Arson balloon starts fire outside Israeli community near Gaza

A balloon attached to a flaming device lands in a field near the Gaza-adjacent community of Netiv Haasara in the Hof Ashkelon region, the regional council says in a statement.

The incendiary object, likely launched from Gaza by Palestinian terrorists, started a fire in the area.

Security staff are at the scene and “dealing with the incident,” the statement says.
