Escalation: Hand grenade attached to balloon found in southern Israel
BREAKING: A hand grenade attached to a firebomb-balloon launched by Muslim terrorists from Gaza, was found near Re’em Junction in southern Israel.
The junction was blocked and Police sappers were called to the scene to neutralize the grenade.
No one was wounded.
Gadi Yarkoni, Head of Eshkol Regional Council said in response that ” the terror of incendiary balloons is escalating, now with explosives intended to increase the intensity of the damage.”
Earlier today, a flotilla filled with Muslim terrorists has set sail from northern Gaza heading toward Israel’s maritime border in order to infiltrate into Israel and murder Jews.
The IDF is using crowd dispersal methods, including live fire at main terrorists. Injuries reported from IDF fire.
Israeli media reported on Saturday that Hamas terror group threatens to escalate the border riots if Israel “does not end the blockade this week”.
The legal blockade of Gaza meant to prevent weapons from being transferred into the hands of terrorists, including the ruling Hamas terror group.
On Thursday, Egypt closed Rafah crossing with Gaza in response to Hamas’ refusal to attend reconciliation talks.
