And much of the mainstream media says nothing. The mainstream media will only report on these terror attacks when the tiny Jewish state defends itself against Hamas. And that is when they will victimize Hamas and condemn Israel. By the way, it is not an accident that their has been a spike in these balloon attacks since Naftali Bennett was replaced by Benny Gantz as Israel’s defense minister. Hamas knows weakness when they see it.

Incendiary, explosive balloons from Gaza continue to hit southern Israel

Balloon units in the Gaza Strip warned on Wednesday that they would continue launches of incendiary and explosive balloons in response to IDF strikes against terror infrastructure in the Strip on Tuesday night, as Israeli officials warned of a forceful response to the launches.
The Sons of Al-Zawari balloon unit warned in a reportedly direct Telegram channel that they would be “beginning a new battle” on Wednesday morning in response to airstrikes conducted by the IDF in Gaza. Other balloon units echoed the statement, saying that they “are not afraid of [Israel’s] threats or planes.”
Many of the statements by the balloon units in recent days have referred to the launches as the “Battle of the Lion’s Roar.”
On Wednesday, at least eight fires were reported in southern Israel in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council and near Sderot. It is still unclear whether the fires were caused by incendiary balloons.
A large fire was reported between Kibbutz Or HaNer and Sderot. A large number of firefighters and security forces were present at the scene. Police closed a number of roads nearby, according to KAN news.
