Yesterday, a balloon-borne incendiary device was sent from the Gaza Strip into Israel which resulted in a fire in the Kissufim Forest near the Gaza border

The Israeli military attacked a Hamas outpost on in retaliation to the firing of the first airborne firebomb from the Gaza Strip since November.

This is not the first time this month the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) have reported threatening devices being launched from Gaza. On 6 February, the IDF stated that a rocket was launched from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

The Gaza border area has been the scene of violent clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli military since late March, when Hamas launched the Great March of Return movement.
