An incendiary balloon sparked a fire in the Be'eri Forest in southern Israel on Tuesday afternoon, according to Kan news.


Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh said in late June that Hamas and Israel had signed a deal, brokered by Egypt, Qatar and the United Nations, in which two industrial zones, a new power line and a hospital would be built for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip as part of truce understandings between his Islamist group and Israel.
In return, Haniyeh said that Palestinian factions in Gaza were committed to maintaining calm by stopping the balloon launchings and night-time demonstrations along the border that have led to clashes with Israeli forces.

Reuters contributed to this report.
