Attached to the balloon reaching the Israeli Eshkol Council from Gaza on Saturday, Oct. 13, was a bomb inside a cardboard container in the shape of Al Aqsa Mosque. One of the half dozen balloons landing in Jerusalem this week – one behind the Knesset – contained explosives, more than six months since thousands of Hamas’ weaponized “toys” began devastating broad areas of fields, nature reserves and wildlife in southern Israel. DEBKAfile: Though still primitive, the balloons are being constantly upgraded by Hamas to start claiming lives as well as destroying property. A flying balloon bomb has only to strike a kindergarten, a school, or a residential district to achieve this effect. Meanwhile, the public is being warned not to approach a fallen balloon but to call the police immediately, while they askng hard questions about why this form of terror is not being stopped.
