The Israeli Air Force struck a terrorist cell that launched a bomb-laden balloon into Israel from Gaza.
The IDF struck a terrorist cell that launched incendiary balloons towards Israel from the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday.
The IDF also attacked two additional terrorist cells located in Dir al-Balah, according to Ynet.
According to a statement released by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, one strike was carried out by an “Israeli Air Force vehicle against a Hamas terrorist squad.”
Local Palestinian media said at least one Palestinian was killed in the strike.
The strike came as at least three fires were ignited in southern Israel near the communities of Yad Mordechai and Or HaNer one day after some hundreds of rockets and mortars were launched by Hamas into Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that Israel will not tolerate the continued kite and balloon arson attacks that have burned thousands of dunams of forests and agricultural land adjacent to the Gaza border in recent months.
