IDF drone targets terror cell of balloon-launcher terrorists in Gaza

BREAKING: The IDF carried out an aircraft attack targeting a terror cell of Muslim terrorists who were launching explosive devices and firebombs attached to balloons from Gaza into Israeli territory.

The terror cell was located near the Zeitoun neighborhood, east of Gaza city, the same location of yesterday’s strikes on balloon launchers.

Despite the drone strike, a new batch of explosive devices attached to balloons was launched from east of Gaza city into Israel.

 Police warn Israelis not to touch burning kites, tires or incendiary balloons and immediately report them to the police emergency line.

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.

A wide-scale operation against Hamas is still very much a possibility in the coming days.
