The issue reportedly led to a debate between Israel's military chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot and far-right Education Minister Naftali Bennett during a security cabinet meeting on Sunday. 100 days shoot and burn fields, but the Prime Minister arrived to talk to residents.

The posts were located in the northern Gaza Strip near the point from which arson balloons were launched. "This cease-fire, which Hamas has decided that it is a outcome of the loss of control by the government, which takes decisions".

Netanyahu met Monday in Sderot with the heads of the local municipal councils of communities located in the Gaza border area.

Israel said it unleashed Saturday's barrage in response to weeks of violence along Gaza's border - including a grenade attack Friday that wounded an officer - as well as sustained Hamas rocket attacks and a campaign of incendiary devices floating over the border.

Israel's latest measure comes following Israel's initial closing of the Karam Abu Salem Crossing on July 9, when they announced only items deemed "humanitarian" by Israeli authorities will be allowed to enter Gaza including food, hygiene and medical supplies, fuel, animal feed and livestock. It however recently raised it to six until it decided this week to reduce it again to three nautical miles to punish Gaza for its so-called incendiary balloons that have caused fire in Israeli border towns' fields. Twenty-five people were wounded across Gaza, the ministry said.

Thick plumes of smoke rose over parts of the Gaza Strip as Israel hit dozens of targets it said belonged to militants, including a high-rise building allegedly used by Hamas as a training facility with a tunnel underneath.

At least two groups launched kites towards Israel on Sunday.
