Watch: Israel deploys ‘Lahav Or’ laser system to intercept firebombs and bombs attached to balloons from Gaza

BREAKING: Israel has deployed the Lahav Or laser system to intercept incendiary and explosive devices attached to balloons, launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza.

Local residents heard IED balloons exploding over eastern Gaza.

At least 60 fires broke out today in southern Israel due to firebombs and explosive devices attached to 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 near Sderot, Nahal Oz, Be’er Marva, Shokeda Forest, Be’eri, Kissufim Forest and in the Eshkol and Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Councils.

“I want to say to all of Iran’s forces, including in Gaza, there will be a very heavy price for the balloon terror,” PM Netanyahu said.

“We will not suffer this, we will act and exact a heavy price. We have done it in the past and we will do it now,” he added.

The rise in tensions coincides with the next month’s expiration of monthly cash bribes provided to Hamas by Qatar.
