Explosive device lands in Sderot – Additional Iron Dome batteries deployed in southern Israel
BREAKING: An explosive device attached to a bunch of balloons launched by Muslim terrorists in Gaza landed in the city of Sderot, in southern Israel.
Police sappers were called to neutralize the bomb.
⚠ Police warn Israelis not to touch burning kites, tires or incendiary balloons and immediately report them to the police emergency line.
In addition, a group of Muslim terrorists sabotaged the security border fence near al-Bureij in central Gaza, infiltrated into Israel, damaged IDF property and fled back to Gaza unharmed.
The IDF deployed additional Iron Dome missile defense batteries in southern Israel, in preparation for a possible escalation and rocket attacks from Gaza.
Security forces stationed along the Gaza border noticed unusual activity carried out by Islamic Jihad terrorists, which might be conducted in preparation for the launching of rockets, breaching of the security fence or an anti-tank missile attack.
According to Arab reports, Saif Al-Islam and Nasser Salah Al-Din Brigades terror groups refused the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel and joined efforts to undermine the arrangement.
Senior security sources say the forces stationed on the Gaza border have not been called up to deal with the Saturday’s riots. A wide-scale operation against Hamas is still very much a possibility in the coming days.
