After a coronavirus-related hiatus, the Palestinians this month stepped up cross-border attacks from the Gaza Strip, including what Israel calls “balloon terrorism” – and set fire to agricultural fields in southern Israel with balloons.
Israel cut fuel shipments and closed its border crossings with Gaza in response to the attacks, resulting in the closure of the only power plant in the Gaza Strip due to a lack of fuel. It also restricted the fishing zone off the coast of the Gaza Strip.
