At the end of a tense day across the country - during which thousands of people participated in the flag parade in Jerusalem, along with 20 fires that broke out in the Gaza Envelope area, the Bennett-Lapid government was required to deal with a trap left to it by its predecessor.

The existence of the sensitive parade provoked the area, and also led to a number of violent disturbances along the Gaza Strip border.



In four cases, Palestinians tried to infiltrate the perimeter fence, and the IDF fired deterrents and used means to disperse demonstrations. In one case in the southern Gaza Strip, three Palestinians managed to infiltrate, and after an investigation, they were taken for questioning. Hamas did not prevent disturbances. Operate 'confusion squads' that set fire to tires and continued to inflate incendiary balloons. However, no rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, although the IDF prepared for the possibility and even maintained high alert in the air defense system, and even decided to divert civilian aircraft at Ben Gurion Airport.

Already in the evening, Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi is holding consultations on what is happening on the ground and possible responses. So far, the IDF has chosen not to respond to the firing of incendiary balloons from Gaza, but security officials said tonight Shortly after the operation, Kochavi referred to the nature of the IDF's response to terrorist acts from the Gaza Strip, saying that "what was is not what will be."



Meanwhile, security sources said that negotiations between Israel and Hamas mediated by Egypt were stalled, as senior Egyptian government officials were waiting to see how the new government would take shape, what its policy would be and whether Hamas would maintain a ceasefire. Despite this, security sources say that the IDF must respond to the terror that Hamas used today against residents of the south and IDF soldiers along the border, since these are actions contrary to the ceasefire agreement, and that this is also required at the cost of Hamas' response to the IDF attack.

In addition, Defense Minister Bnei Gantz continues to insist on a policy that states that "without progress on the issue of prisoners and missing persons, there will be no progress in the process of settling and rehabilitating the Gaza Strip."

Five fuel trucks entered the Gaza Strip today through the Kerem Shalom crossing, with no similar orders tomorrow, and it is estimated that fuel will enter the Gaza Strip from Egypt.
