Hamas Launches Fleet of Incendiary Balloons at Israel Causing 11 Fires


Terrorists from Hamas and Islamic Jihad launched a fleet of incendiary balloons at Israel on one of the hottest days of the year thus far. Many of the balloons landed in Israel and sparked 11 fires that blazed through fields and open spaces in the Gaza periphery.

Among the fields burned were numerous grain fields, whose grain is now undergoing the harvesting process.

Firefighters from around the area as well as security officials and private citizens from the nearby towns rushed to the fires and began the task of putting them out. The fires spread quickly and widely due to the dryness of the fields and the heat of the day.

While seven of the fires occurred in the Eshkol region, the biggest of the 11 took place in the Sedot Negev region, where one fire burned through 50 dunams of fields before being brought to a halt.

  1. To Loshenhora, HOW DARE YOU! You don’t let them have peaceful parades. You don’t let them improve their tunnels, to expand their subway service. They are trying to compete with Israel aeronautics and send a rocket into space, but each time they do you blow up their buildings. And now they play with balloons and you condemn that too.

  2. and this is supposed to be a cease fire?
    and I voted for Bibi?
    disgusting of the Israelis to put up with this ACT OF WAR !!!
