Israel reduces Gaza fishing zone due to border terrorism

Israel announced Tuesday it was cutting back the permitted fishing zone for Gaza fishermen to 10 nautical miles down from 15 in response to firebombs and explosive devices launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza into Israeli towns in recent days.

A large fire broke out Tuesday afternoon in a wheat field near Kibbutz Kfar Aza, in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, due to an explosive device attached to balloons.

In addition, the Islamic Jihad issued a statement threatening that rockets launched by the terror group in previous rounds were only an example of what will happen to Israeli cities in any incoming confrontation.

Several fires broke out the last week in Israeli towns near the Gaza border due to incendiary devices launched from Gaza.

Multiple fire department units dealt yesterday with fires in the Eshkol area, Kibbutz Yakhini near Sderot and two large blazes near Be’eri.

Sons of Zawari, a cell of Muslim terrorists who have launched thousands of incendiary devices into Israel posted on social media the launch of large batches of explosives attached to balloons and announced the preparation for the return of the late-night riots along the Gaza border.
