Extreme heatwave and terrorism: Fires broke out in Israel due to incendiary devices launched from Gaza
At least ten fires broke out today in Israeli towns near the Gaza border due to incendiary balloons launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza into Israel.
Their goal? Torching Israeli fields, destroying wildlife, people’s food and livelihoods.
Multiple fire department units dealt with fires in southern Israel, including a large blaze in Netivot.
Tax authorities in the port of Ashdod thwarted the smuggling of millions of balloons to be used by terror groups as incendiary weapons.
David Cohen, the Jewish owner of a cargo company, was planning to transfer the balloons to a Muslim terrorist from Hevron, who would then send small shipments of the balloons to Gaza.
Hundreds of firebombs and explosive devices attached to drones and balloons are currently being launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza into Israeli territory.
⚠ Police warn Israelis not to touch burning kites, tires or incendiary balloons and immediately report them to the police emergency line.
Yesterday, a terror cell of Muslim terrorists who have launched thousands of incendiary and explosive devices from Gaza into Israeli territory, posted on social media a threat to Israel: “Our message is clear and direct, tomorrow we will make all Israel hell”.
An extreme heatwave hits Israel today and will reign supreme throughout the country over the coming weekend. The unseasonable heatwave coincides with the Jewish holiday of Lag B’Omer, which is celebrated with bonfires.
Fire and Rescue Services released a statement limiting bonfires for Lag B’Omer celebrations, making it clear that lighting bonfires in parks, as well as areas prone to risk, is prohibited due to the heatwave.
