The IDF posted a photo of a suspicious cluster of balloons, saying that it had explosives attached to it.

The plane with explosives landed near the settlement of Sdot Negev in the Southern District of Israel and was defused by police sappers.

According to the IDF, it’s helicopters attacked two Hamas positions in Gaza following the attempted attack.

One strike hit an observation point for Hamas’s armed wing, while another one occurred east of Gaza City, AFP reported, citing a Hamas security source.

Tensions on the Israeli border with Gaza flared up during the Great March of Return rally, which began on March 30, 2018, on the 70th anniversary of the foundation of Israel and in protest against the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem, which Palestinians consider to be their capital.

Hamas seized control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 following Fatah’s defeat in the 2014 parliamentary elections.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
