At least 3 brush fires reported in area close to Gaza Strip
[IsraelTimes] At least three brush fires started Thursday in the area around the Gazoo Strip, apparently sparked by incendiary balloons that were floated across the border, local officials said.
Firefighters worked to control the blazes, which broke out in the Shokeda and Be’eri forests close to the border with the Paleostinian enclave.
There were no injuries or damage to property reported in the fires.
The Gazoo-based Sons of Zouari, which has been behind most of the balloon-based attacks on southern Israel in the past year, also threatened in a statement that the terror group would be "more active than ever" on Wednesday.
