Hamas explained the threat of escalation on the grounds that “Israel continues to tighten its siege on the Gaza Strip and is thwarting projects for its development, in a way that harms the humanitarian situation.”
We further noted the fact that the locomotive aid ends this month and there is no sign that the locomotive intends to renew the aid for another six months.
According to the newspaper, the expectation is that the armed organizations in the Gaza Strip, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other organizations, will respond to every offensive step that Israel takes, including firing rockets at Israel and incendiary balloons.
During Shabbat, a bundle of balloons with a suspicious charge was located near Kibbutz Nir Oz in the Eshkol Regional Council, in the Gaza Strip. Police saboteurs were called to the scene.
In addition, the police said that during the night an explosive sound was heard in Netivot. A sapper who arrived at the scene found an explosive that allegedly arrived using a balloon and exploded. Police have opened an investigation.
This is the third day in a row that explosive balloons have been blown up from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory – on Tuesday, Israel responded strongly and aggressively in response in the Gaza Strip.
The IDF said at the time that an IDF fighter jet and aircraft had attacked an underground infrastructure of the Hamas terrorist organization in the northern Gaza Strip. The attack was carried out in response to the blowing up of explosive balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.
