Israeli forest rangers and security personnel were present with firefighting equipment and a video camera on Sunday afternoon, just in time to grab a shot of an incendiary balloon landing in the Be’eri Forest adjacent to a parking lot just 10 meters from Kibbutz Nahal Oz, in southern Israel, along the Gaza border.
