Along with the rockets shot from Lebanon towards Israel's north on Friday morning, the border with Gaza continues to be tense. Four fires caused by incendiary balloons broke out in several areas close to the Gaza Strip on Friday afternoon, HaKeren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) reported. The head of COGAT, Maj.-Gen. Ghassan Alian, addressed Gaza Strip residents via Facebook in response to the fires. "Are you really willing to endanger your daily lives for the sake of balloons?" he asked. "Have you not had enough of this endless circle that leads you nowhere? Are these balloons worth more than the shrinking of your fishing zone? Maintaining the quiet and security in the region will better your economy," he wrote. After Operation Guardian of the Walls, the IDF has consistently been attacking in response to incendiary balloons that caused brush fires in the Gaza border areas.
