3 explosives carried by balloons from Gaza detonate in Israeli territory

JERUSALEM (JTA) — At least three explosive devices carried by balloons from Gaza to southern Israel have detonated in Israeli territory.

One of the explosives landed between two buildings in a Gaza border community on Monday before detonating, but did not cause any damage.

The Israel Defense Forces responded to the first explosion with attacks on two Hamas military posts in Gaza.

Two other homemade bombs carried into Israel Monday afternoon by clusters of balloons detonated in the air, causing no damage or injuries.
