After Gaza crossing reopened, incendiary balloon sparks blaze in Israel
[IsraelTimes] Since this morning, firefighters have worked to extinguish one blaze caused by an incendiary balloon that fell near Kibbutz Alumim adjacent to the Gazoo Strip, a front man for the Israel Fire and Rescue Services says.

The balloon appears to be the first incendiary airborne device to spark a fire in Israeli territory since restrictions were lifted earlier today on the entry of goods to Gazoo through the Kerem Shalom Crossing. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman attributed the decision to the relative calm on the border in recent days.
