Late Saturday night, an IAF aircraft targeted a cell of terror arsonists launching incendiary balloons into southern Israel. In addition, clashes were reported at multiple sites along the Gaza border near Jabalya and Khan Younis, in northern and southern Gaza respectively.
Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters at the mobs who stormed the security fence, the IDF said, but no further details were available.
Incidents at the border have increased from weekly events to near-daily attacks. The number of Gaza Arabs attempting to storm the security fence and the number of arson attacks is also on the rise.
