Clusters of incendiary balloons land across southern Israel

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A number of incendiary balloons launched from the besieged Gaza Strip landed across southern Israel, on Monday morning.

According to Hebrew-language news outlets, Palestinians from Gaza continued to launch incendiary balloons towards Eshkol Regional Council, however, no material damages were reported.

Sources also mentioned that two large clusters of incendiary balloons, carrying explosive devices, landed in the northern Negev desert.

Israeli police and explosives experts immediately arrived at the scene and dealt with the balloons.

No injuries nor material damages were reported.

Sources added that more than 20 incendiary balloons and kites were launched from Gaza towards southern Israel.

In addition, Israeli forces set up several Iron Dome defense system anti-missile batteries throughout Israeli communities surrounding Gaza.

Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites as a form of protest against Israel's nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees right of return to their homes and lands which are now known as Israel.
