Firefighters bring 11 fires lit by Hamas balloons under control

At least 11 fires blazed in Eshkol and Sdot Negev regions on Wednesday from incendiary balloons tossed over from the Gaza Strip. One consumed a 12-acre wheat field belonging to Kibbutz Alumim. By nightfall, the firefighters had brought them all under control. Because of the exceptionally dry, hot and windy weather Israel’s fire and rescue services had issued a fire warning across the country and banned the customary Lag Be’Omer bonfires.in many places.

    The IDF should shoot down any balloons as soon as they are launched by using a long range shotgun and “rock salt” ammo…

      Stop the talk with no action. If you do not want to invade, follow the eye for an eye rule:
      Wait for the wind to blow from the East, and launch fire balloons into gaza. Period.

    Our great Prophet ﷺ
    never said, murmur, or noted about the big event of the apparition of Arafat’s refugees from the deepest of Eghipt and from the desert of Jordan. And nothing about the invention of 2 new countries Gaza and West Bank in the Jews’ land.
    It follows that something is wrong with the refugees, or with our great prophet Prophet ﷺ
    But a prophet does not lie.
    It follows that something is wrong the pretended refugees.

    Gee, what happened to my reading a cease fire of 6 months included extended fishing and no incendiary balloons????

    That was a short Hudna.

    Anything walking, running, flying, driving within 350 meters of the fence should become vapor, along w crews, cars, buildings they emerged from

    Just have Drones and vision systems to detect people doing stuff at the border. If people are found send capsules with nerve gas to produce pain and health problems but to just not kill the person. So they will learn it the hard way.

    You know when you’re raving about using drones against Palestinians in a concentration camp to stop BALLOONS, you’ve lost already by virtue of your own pathetic cowardice.

    Hamas sends “fire balloons”, into Israel and we stop firing at them. What is next? Should we offer them a coffee latte with a croissant.
