Terror balloons lead to campaign against Purim firecrackers and caps

Against the backdrop of the increase in explosives-laden balloons launched by Gaza terrorists, authorities in the the Gaza perimeter and the Negev began on Tuesday to distribute messages to residents and schools, saying that the use of explosives such as firecrackers and caps on the Purim holiday in less than a month should be avoided, including at official parties, according to Yediot Ahronot.

The messages say "Switchboards are being flooded with calls from frightened citizens who make connections between explosive balloons and explosives."
