Earlier, an IDF aircraft struck a terrorist squad that was launching arson balloons from southern Gaza into Israel. Arabs report one Muslim terrorist eliminated, two seriously wounded in the strike.

At least 18 fires have been caused by firebomb-launchers around the border fence area today, over 70 fires since the Saturday ‘ceasefire’.

The IDF released a statement shortly after the report saying, “The IDF will continue to act with greater strength against terror activities that are being led by the Hamas terror movement and it views these activities seriously.”
