Balloon Incendiary Device Found In Givat Ze’ev


A Jerusalem police spokesman on Monday, 29 Tishrei, reported an incendiary balloon was detected in a yard of a home in Givat Ze’ev, which is close to Jerusalem. These balloon devices have become commonplace in communities in southern Israel in proximity to the Gaza border.

Police and bomb squad technicians arrived on the scene and removed the suspicious balloon device. An investigation has been launched.

Police call on the public to remain vigilant regarding suspicious objects, urging the tzibur to immediately phone the 100 emergency number if a device is suspected to pose a threat.
