Factors in the security system: We will respond strongly to the launching of the explosive balloons


In recent days, the security situation in the south of the country has escalated. Just today, a total of 60 fires broke out in various hotspots in the southern region starting in the morning, as a result of incendiary balloons that were blown up in the Gaza Strip. The main fires broke out in the Ashkelon Beach, Eshkol, Sha’ar Hanegev and Merhavim regional councils. “It should be noted that most of the hotspots were small, but some were damaged,” said fire and rescue services.

Three of the fires that broke out today occurred in the areas of the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, near Kibbutz Erez. Another fire broke out in the area of ​​Kibbutz Kissufim. Sappers were also called to an area near the settlement of Maon between Arad and Hebron, after an incendiary balloon was found at the site.

Also yesterday, dozens of fires broke out throughout the western Negev following incendiary balloons, and these were also launched on Tuesday. In response, on the night between Saturday and Sunday, IDF aircraft attacked a Hamas observation post.
