Israel has cut the fishing zone it allows off Gaza, an official says Thursday, in the third such response in a fortnight to Palestinian incendiary balloons.
The Israeli official tells AFP on condition of anonymity that as of Wednesday the fishing limit for Gaza fishermen had been reduced from a maximum of 15 nautical miles to 10.
A spokesman for the Israeli fire service said incendiary balloons from Gaza caused three blazes on Tuesday.
It was only on Tuesday that Israel restored the limit to 15 miles after a previous reduction in response to fire balloons last week.
It imposed a similar cut on May 23.
The limit of up to 15 nautical miles set ahead of the April general election is the largest allowed in years.
