Balloon Carrying Firebomb From Gaza Hits Israeli Kindergarten

(Israel Hayom) A balloon carrying a firebomb launched from the Gaza Strip landed in the yard of a kindergarten in the southern Israeli town of Tkuma this week while young children were playing there. The bomb caused a small fire in the sandy yard, which was quickly contained.

“We had just let the kids outside so they could go play,” kindergarten teacher Bat Sheva Bruchin said. “Just as we were heading toward the grass, I looked up and saw smoke from above. I immediately realized it was a firebomb balloon. My biggest fear was that the balloon was carrying explosives or gas. I had no time to think and I began moving the kids to a protected area, just as we had practiced time and time again. I then called the rescue services and they quickly arrived.”

Earlier in the day, two incendiary balloons were found in a school in the area, but caused no injuries to the staff in the building.
