Three clusters of balloons were found on Friday afternoon in open fields within the Eshkol Regional Council. 
Israeli security is on the scene. Two clusters were with explosive and the third with painted hearts. 
Roughly 8,000 Palestinians clashed with IDF security forces during what Palestinians call March of Return on Friday. 22 Palestinians were shot by IDF snipers and four paramedics suffered from tear-gas related injuries said the Palestinian Ministry of Health. 
Israeli media reported dozens of attempts to assault IDF soldiers with rocks and explosive devices as well as over 15 cases of protesters attempting to cross over into Israel.
