Gaza militants continue to terrorise Israel’s civilian population which lives along the Gaza border as they send balloons laden with burning materials across the border into Israel, setting off thirteen fires on Monday alone.

Shockingly, one of the incendiary balloons landed in a kindergarten. Thankfully it was after four o’clock and the school was empty but was filled with children just minutes earlier.

Some 220 of dunams of land were burned, according to a report. The balloons landed in the Eshkol, Shaar Hanegev and Sdot Negev regional councils.

Tamir Idan, head of the Sdot Negev regional council, demanded the government to act.

“A firebomb in a kindergarten is just like a missile in a kindergarten … You cannot keep quiet, every day there are fires in the vicinity and there is no response from Israel. And the smell of smoke, the terror of the burning balloons must stop,” Idan said, according to Mako. “I demand that the government act immediately before a disaster occurs, God forbid. The conflagration that occurred today in the kindergarten in the council could have caused disaster if it had landed a few minutes earlier. To continue to absorb more and more Molotov cocktails and to destroy our routine in this reality.”

Israel was forced to take drastic measures in an attempt to stop these attacks from happening.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) announced on Tuesday that it would temporarily stop the transfer of fuel into Gaza following these attacks.

COGAT Spokesperson Maj.-Gen. Kamil Abu Rokon shared a video telling the Palestinians in Gaza that terrorism prevents them from having increased electricity hours.

“Between 85 and 75 tankers of fuel enter the Gaza Strip each week, which helps significantly increase electricity hours. Terrorism prevents you from having that,” the video explained.
