(ReliableNews.org) – Despite the Trump Administration’s attempts to bring peace to Israeli and Palestinian people, militants in Gaza refuse to stop their attacks. Now, they’ve decided to terrorize families in the region by delivering explosive devices on balloons.
It may sound crazy, but that’s exactly what’s happening. Militants tie the devices to a bundle of colorful balloons and let them loose.
“In recent months, hundreds of booby-trapped balloons — sometimes bearing the messages “I Love You” and “Happy Birthday” along with small improvised explosives dangling by a string — have descended on… communities downwind of the nearby Gaza Strip” https://t.co/MTsgvWzEuM

Local police officer, Chai Fahima, said the purpose is to scare residents in the Gaza strip, a 140-square-mile piece of land between Israel and Egypt that’s home to Palestinians. Some of the most brutal conflicts have taken place in the war between Palestine and the US ally in this area.
Unbelievably, according to the Washington Post, one of the terrorists said the bombs aren’t meant to kill children (the most likely candidates to go after them). No one is reported to have been killed by these devices as of yet, but police fear it’s only a matter of time.
