Israel closes Kerem Shalom commercial border crossing with Gaza in response to explosive balloons
BREAKING: Israel closed its only goods crossing with Gaza after Muslim terrorists continue attempting to murder Jews by launching explosive devices and firebombs attached to balloons into Israeli territory for the fifth day in a row.
“The decision was made following security deliberations and in light of repeated terror attacks committed by terror groups in Gaza against Israeli citizens, which is a violation of the Israeli sovereignty,” the Coordinator of Government Activities in the territories (COGAT) said.
At least 30 fires broke out in southern Israel due to incendiary balloons launched from Gaza.
Police sappers were called to neutralize explosive devices that landed in several locations along the Gaza border.
Huge volleys of explosive balloons are currently being launched toward Israel and explosions are being heard as the bombs explode mid-air.
Earlier today, cells of Muslim terrorists who have launched thousands of incendiary devices into Israel threatened Jews living near the Gaza border saying that they should leave their homes because there will be more incendiary balloons than they have ever seen.
The Muslim terror cells posted on social media pictures of devices ready to be used.
Hamas has launched at least 11 rockets into the sea this morning as a part of an ongoing drill aimed to show strength as the terror group and other Muslim terrorist factions in Gaza threaten with ending their ceasefire with Israel.
The rise in tensions coincides with the next month’s expiration of monthly cash bribes provided to Hamas by Qatar.
