“Burning balloon” causes fire at Erez Crossing

A large fire broke out Sunday morning near the Erez Crossing, caused by a burning balloon fired from the Gaza Strip.

Israeli media reported that the balloon was fired by youths early this morning.

Since the beginning of the Great March of Return, starting on March 30, Palestinian youths have utilized kites and balloons as incendiary devices that they launch towards the occupied Palestinian territories adjacent to the Gaza Strip.
