Children in a kindergarten near Kiryat Gat were forced to run for shelter on Wednesday, as a suspicious batch of balloons, possibly carrying explosives, was seen drifting close to the kindergarten, according to Channel 13.
In a video, the balloons can be seen drifting as the teacher calls the crying children to come back to the building while they were playing outside in the yard.
Meanwhile, another batch of explosives attached to balloons was spotted in a field near Sderot, near the Gaza border.
As a result of the continuing violence emanating from Gaza, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) announced on Wednesday that the Gaza fishing zone was being reduced from 15 nautical miles to 10.
“The decision was made following the continuity of rocket fire and the blooming of explosive balloons from the Gaza Strip to the territory of the State of Israel,” COGAT announced.
The Israeli Air Force carried out air strikes on several Hamas targets late on Tuesday night, following the launching of three rockets towards Israel earlier in the night.
A spokesperson for the IDF confirmed that three rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip, all landing in open fields near the town of Netivot.
