The massive fires that have recently decimated southern Israel are the work of jihadi arsonists who sent kites and balloons fitted out with molotov cocktails across the border from Gaza into Israel. There is no method of destruction and death that these savages don’t embrace. And several years ago, ISIS announced its use of a new weapon: fire. ISIS called on the ummah (the worldwide Muslim community) to launch arson terror attacks against infidels, referring specifically to the jihad against Israel:
“The whole world witnessed the devastating fires that ravaged Jewish settlements in Palestine, destroying around 700 Jewish homes. Irrespective of the motive, this deliberate act of destruction demonstrated the lethality of such an effortless operation. The attacks likewise demonstrate that with some simple and readily accessible materials (i.e. flammables), one can easily terrorize an entire nation. This is a quick option for anyone intending to join the just terror campaign.”
In an issue of ISIS’s online magazine, Rumiyah, in an article titled “Just Terror Tactics” under the category “arson attacks,” ISIS called on jihadis to firebomb places where infidels gather.
“29 fires erupt as Palestinian arson terrorism continues to scorch western Negev,” by Nikki Guttman and Adi Hashmonai, Israel Hayom, August 1, 2018:
Twenty-nine fires erupted in Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip border Tuesday, as Palestinian arson terrorism continued to wreak havoc near the volatile frontier.
One incendiary balloon sent over the Gaza border landed on a parked vehicle in the Eshkol Regional Council, damaging its roof. No injuries were reported in the incident.
Sdot Negev Regional Council head Tamir Idan leveled harsh criticism at the government over what he called its tolerance of the situation.
”Frankly, I’m very concerned by the government’s inaction. Especially given the promises made to us during their [ministers’] recent meetings with the local council heads.
”This type of prolonged inaction is perceived by the other side as a serious weakness. Hamas continues to dictate reality on the ground and we keep being dragged behind it,” he said.
Various ministers visited the Gaza-vicinity communities over the past few weeks, each saying that Israel will not tolerate arson terrorism as the norm near the border.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who visited Kibbutz Or Haner, some 3.7 kilometers (2.3 miles) from Gaza, last week, warned that ”if we have Color Red [rocket alerts] here, Gaza will turn deep red too.”
”We would prefer not to be dragged into war, and we’re doing everything we can to avoid a large operation, but the ball is not in our court. I highly recommend Hamas be wise about it,” Lieberman said.
Idan demanded the government “live up to its statements that kite and balloon terrorism would be treated like rocket fire.”…
