Southern Israel Ablaze Amid Fresh Wave of Terror Kites

Sunday, June 17, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff

Israeli firefighters battled dozens of blazes in the south of the country over the weekend, when Palestinians flew a fresh wave of kites and balloons loaded with incendiary devices into the Negev region.

Seven fires scorched dozens of acres in southern Israel on Saturday, and the area suffered 11 blazes on Friday.

Hamas had threatened to send 5,000 "terror kites" into southern Israel, but fortunately that didn't happen.

Of the kites and balloons that Gazans did launch, a great many were intercepted by Israeli military drones.

Still, the damage caused by those that managed to land in southern Israel was extensive.
