Israel Shuts Off Fuel Supplies to Gaza after Spate of Arson Attacks

(Israel Hayom) Gadi Golan - On Monday afternoon, explosives-laden balloons floated over the Israel-Gaza border and sparked eight wildfires in the space of an hour. In response, Israel announced Tuesday it was halting the transfer of fuel to Gaza's only power plant until further notice. A security coordinator for one of the Israeli communities said Sunday: "The balloon terrorism has become a major issue in the day-to-day lives of the residents of [these] communities. The ones who pay the heaviest price are the farmers, who see months of labor go up in flames in moments. Massive damage is also being caused to the fields and the crops, as well as to agricultural equipment."
