Balloon terrorism continues to damage fields, farmers and the morale of the residents of the Gaza envelope.
"The land of Kibbutz Nir Am didn't catch on fire in the current wave but mainly because the residents simply harvested their wheat before it was ripe.
"This year, the Ministry of Agriculture issued a recommendation to simply harvest the wheat early when it's still green, and the state compensated us for the difference in price if we had harvested regular wheat," Ofer Lieberman, the agriculture director at Kibbutz Nir Am told Arutz Sheva. We did this to all our fields and reached a point where there were no fires here.”
"Incendiary balloons from the Gaza Strip continue to reach the area. "They land here because the balloons are impossible to direct but they have nothing to ignite," Lieberman said. "As far as we're concerned, it saved us because it's a nightmare to remember what happened here a year ago.” arutzsheva
