Incendiary balloons spark four fresh fires in south

Four fires have broken out in the Eshkol Regional Council on the Israeli side of the Gaza border.

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

The Israel Defense Forces carried out a series of airstrikes throughout the Strip early Wednesday morning in response to the over two dozen fires in southern Israel yesterday, caused by incendiary devices launched from the coastal enclave.

It represented the first exchange between terror groups in Gaza and the IDF since last month’s 11-day conflict in the Strip.
