Palestinian incendiary kite and balloon terror continued on Saturday as 15 fires raged in the south of the country.

Fires were reported near the Kerem Shalom area, in the Kissufim-Re'im area, Erez, and surrounding outposts.

Road 232 was blocked in the Be'eri area early on Saturday.

There was also a large fire reported in Mavki'im, a town just a few miles north of Gaza. Fire fighters worked to protect the town and gain control over the fire.
