Earlier tonight, Israeli fighter jets bombed Hamas terror targets in Gaza in response to hundreds of explosive devices and firebombs attached to balloons launched by Muslim terrorists toward southern Israel.
Hundreds of Muslim terrorists were rioting tonight along the security border fence with Gaza. They were burning tires, throwing explosive devices and keeping Israeli civilians awake and the IDF busy all night long. Fearing for their lives, they fled the border like rats at the beginning of the strikes.
At least 28 fires broke out on Saturday in southern Israel due to firebombs attached to balloons, launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza into Israel.
