Four blazes signal resumption of Palestinian balloon attacks from Gaza
Fires set by arson balloons launched from the Gaza Strip on Sunday threatened to burn down the Kissufim forest and destroy a kibbutz avocado crop after a respite of three weeks. Firefighters quickly doused the flames. Israel’s first response was to limit the Palestinian fishing zone off the Gaza Strip from 12 to 6 nautical miles. Hamas confirmed that its arson offensive had been resumed.
