Hamas terror arsonists renewed their destructive attacks on farmers in the south of Israel. Just weeks following a hastily-implemented and unstable ceasefire and without provocation, Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip resumed setting fires to Israeli crops and endangering the lives and homes of the region’s civilian population.
The terrorists from Gaza started at least 11 fires on Wednesday. “All of the fires were caused by incendiary balloons,” a spokesman for the local fire department said at the scene in the Eshkol and Sdot Negev regions, near the Gaza border.
The fires were started in open fields and burned crucial springtime crops. Kibbutz Alimim alone lost 50 dunams (12 acres) of wheat in the blaze, a Sdot Negev spokesperson reported.
The regional fire department spokesperson confirmed that as of Wednesday evening, all of the fires were under control. As of this report, the Israeli army and government have yet to respond to these violations of the topsy-turvy ceasefire with Gaza terror groups.
