rating: 0+x

Basic Information

A fire balloon was a hydrogen balloon with incendiary or bombs attached. Fire balloons were developed by Japan to attack the western United States during World War II by having the balloons float all the way over the Pacific Ocean.

In recent times, Arabs living in Gaza have also been using balloons, kites and similar devices with incendiary loads to launch unaimed terrorist attacks into Israel.
