For the second day in a row, Israeli firefighters battled fires in the southern Eshkol region that were sparked by incendiary balloons flown from Gaza.

Tensions between Hamas and Israel have risen, with the IDF conducting airstrikes on Gaza Wednesday morning in response to the balloons.

A Fire and Rescue spokesperson said the fires were small and not dangerous.
