Israel Balloons

Palestinians in Gaza attach a balloon to flammable materials to be flown towards Israel. These incendiary devices have caused destruction to trees, animals, the land and the environment. June 17, 2018.

Three shipping containers containing tens of thousands of balloons on their way to Gaza were stopped and confiscated at the Ashdod port, according to a report by Channel 10.

Hundreds of arson fires sparked by Gaza terrorists have burned more than 7,500 acres of Israeli farm and nature lands in the last few months, causing millions of shekels in damage.

Though a massive military escalation last week has since abated, Israel has not managed to stop the launching of incendiary kites and balloons that have started fires, with some even landing in residential communities. On Friday, a 13-foot-wide massive “terror kite” landed on power lines near Kibbutz Sufa, causing blackouts and leading Israel Electric Company officials to scramble to remove the device before it started a fire.

On Sunday, a video was publicized on Ynet news’ website showing an incendiary device attached to an inflated condom, which only burst into flames after landing, having been attached to a time-delay fuse.

The fire was extinguished quickly.
