IDF Pens Poem Teaching Kids to Keep Away from Gaza Bomb Balloons

(Times of Israel) Judah Ari Gross - The Israel Defense Forces' Home Front Command on Friday released a poem for children warning them against balloon-borne bombs from Gaza. Titled "What does the wind bring with it?," the poem tells children to call an adult and run away if they see a suspicious object. On Friday, at least five of these devices landed in southern Israel. Attached to colorful balloons, some of these explosive devices have been disguised as child-friendly objects like books and soccer balls. Recent weeks have seen a marked increase in the launching of balloon-borne explosive devices, apparently at the direction of Hamas. The past week also saw near-daily rocket and mortar attacks on southern Israel.
