Incendiary balloons from Gaza spark fires in south

Several fires have broken out in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council on the Israeli side of the Gaza border.

The Fire Service says they were caused by incendiary balloons sent from the Strip.

Yesterday, the Hamas terror group’s incendiary balloon unit announced that it would resume operations against the backdrop of the controversial Jerusalem flag march slated for this afternoon.

Israel has warned that it will respond to breaches of its sovereignty, be it rocket fire or the launching of incendiary devices that have torched hundreds of acres of land near the Gaza border.
