Israeli fighter pilots struck a position of the Hamas terrorist organization in southern Gaza on Wednesday evening.

The attack came in response to the flurry of explosive balloon attacks aimed at Israeli territory by the terrorist group in recent days.


Police were summoned to an incident in which terror balloons appeared to be attached to explosives and had landed in two open areas within the Eshkol Regional Council district.

Sappers from the Israel Police bomb squad arrived at the scene and removed any suspicion over whether the balloons were carrying explosive devices.

Israel Police issued a reminder to residents, warning, “Every time one discovers a suspicious object, it is necessary to report it to the police station of the Israel Police, and leave the disposition to police officers and bomb squad sappers of Israel Police.”
