50 fires broke out in Israel due to firebomb-balloons from Gaza – PM Netanyahu: We are preparing for a round
BREAKING: At least 50 fires broke out today in southern Israel due to firebombs and explosive devices attached to balloons, launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza into Israel.
“The response to a balloon will be the likes of a rocket. We are preparing for a round,” PM Netanyahu told southern community council leaders.
“The incendiary balloons are terrorism plain and simple. Hamas knows this is not a game. There will come a time when they will have to decide, and if they want a war they will get a war,” President Rivlin said.
Multiple fire department units dealt today with fires in Kissufim, Be’eri, Sderot, Netiv HaAsara and in the Sdot Negev, Eshkol and Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Councils.
Police sappers were called to neutralize a bomb attached to balloons that landed in a field in Sdot Negev.
