The IDF attacked in the Gaza Strip following the launching of incendiary balloons

Air Force fighter jets attacked targets belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip last night (Sunday) in response to the firing of incendiary balloons into Israeli territory yesterday, which led to a number of thorn fires in the Eshkol Regional Council. A fire investigator from the fire services who was called to the fire stations confirmed that all the fires were caused as a result of incendiary balloons.

Among the targets attacked was a military camp with a number of buildings, infrastructure and means used for the organization’s activities. An IDF spokesman said: “The IDF will respond strongly to the continuation of terrorist attempts from the Gaza Strip.” It was also stated that the terrorist base is located near civilian sites, including a school.

Also in response to the balloon launches, the Coordinator of Government Operations in the Occupied Territories, Major General Rassan Aliyan, announced a reduction in the fishing space in the Gaza Strip from 12 to 6 nautical miles immediately until further notice. The Coordinator of Government Operations in the Occupied Territories stated: “The terrorist organization Hamas bears responsibility for everything that is done in and out of the Gaza Strip towards the State of Israel, and it will bear the consequences of the violence perpetrated against the citizens of the state.”
