A balloon carrying a firebomb launched from the Gaza Strip landed in the yard of a kindergarten in the southern Israeli town of Tkuma on Tuesday, while young children were playing there.
The bomb caused a small fire in the sandy yard, which was quickly contained.
“We had just let the kids outside so they could go play,” kindergarten teacher Bat Sheva Bruchin said.
“Just as we were heading toward the grass, I looked up and saw smoke from above. I immediately realized it was a firebomb balloon. My biggest fear was that the balloon was carrying explosives or gas.
