The teacher of a kindergarten where an incendiary balloon fell yesterday recalled the incident to Army Radio on Wednesday, noting the kindergarten "got lucky" nothing bad happened.
"We got to the yard and within five minutes we and the kids saw something falling from above and saw smoke," Bat Sheva Baruchi told Army Radio. "We got the kids together immediately. I think we got lucky... A lot of the kids don't understand what could have happened. In their minds, its just another attraction that occurred. To our luck, nothing happened. Every child reacts in a different manner," she said.
Prior to the balloon, the IDF had struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip.
