Qatar Aid to Gaza Could Stop if Launching of Incendiary Balloons Continues

Qatar Aid to Gaza Could Stop if Launching of Incendiary Balloons Continues”

The military said it struck a "concrete manufacturing site used for underground infrastructure and tunnel construction, belonging to the Hamas terror organization".

Hamas believes that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government backed off on reaching a long-term truce and sealing prisoners' swap deal, Palestinian sources revealed, noting that in response, Hamas renewed efforts to end the Palestinian division and triggered tension on the borders.

Since last week, a number of rockets have been launched from Gaza along with hundreds of balloons with explosives and incendiary devices attached that have caused dozens of fires in southern Israel.

Egyptian mediators visited Gaza earlier this week try and shore up an informal cease-fire but left without announcing any progress.

At least 12 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel amid an escalation of hostilities between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants.

In recent weeks, terrorists in the Strip have launched hundreds of balloon-borne incendiary and explosive devices into southern Israel, fired at least 16 rockets toward Israeli communities and carried out a sniper attack against Defense Ministry contractors and IDF soldiers near the security fence.

Since August 6, the biesieged coastal enclave has witnessed military tensions with the Israeli army, as the Palestinian youths have been restoring the launch of incendiary balloons toward Israeli cities adjacent to the strip. Late on Thursday local time, IDF fighter jets attacked Hamas posts in the Gaza Strip. On Aug. 20, 42 bush fires were sparked by balloons. The rocket attack was the most serious exchange of fire along the Gaza frontier in months, but there were no reports of casualties.

Hamas in a statement called the closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing a "crime against humanity" and called on the global community and "decision-makers in the region" to "break their silence to bring an end" to the blockade.
