An explosive device attached to a bunch of balloons landed in the Eshkol Regional Council. 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.

“The strike on balloon-launchers is why negotiating with Israel is ridiculous”, Hamas terror group leader Ismail Haniyeh said shortly after the strike.

Yesterday, an explosive device attached to a bunch of balloons launched by Muslim terrorists in Gaza landed in the city of Sderot, in southern Israel.

The IDF deployed additional Iron Dome missile defense batteries in southern Israel, in preparation for a possible escalation and rocket attacks from Gaza.

Haniyeh said on Tuesday that the Egyptian delegation had submitted to Israel the terror group’s demands concerning Muslim terrorists in Israeli Prisons.

The demands include removing the cellphone reception blocking technology, revoking the recently imposed sanctions and renewing family visits.

1,400 Muslim terrorists, including senior Hamas terrorists jailed in five Israeli prisons, to launch a complete hunger strike next week if the devices that block cellphone service to prevent them from communicating with other Muslim terrorists outside the prison aren’t dismantled.
