There was yet one more action
incited by Hamas, an action of serious –
and yes, very infuriating – dimensions:
There were incendiary
balloons launched into southern Israel – with
fires ignited on farmland and fields.
This vile destruction arouses
very justifiable anger. There was one balloon
carrying an explosive device, as well.
And here the situation is
more serious. For after the recent war with Hamas,
Netanyahu warned that we were entering a new time: no level of aggression
would go unanswered. Not even incendiary balloons. Gantz – who
was Defense Minister then and is now – said that Israel would respond
forcefully to any act of aggression. And Bennett is on record as well
regarding the necessity of treating incendiary balloons like rockets.
