Unconfirmed reports say the ponies were dropped from an airship near the town of Kefar Sava. Eyewitnesses claim the airship was piloted by a furry creature some thought may have been Teddy Ruxpin. Ruxpin is thought to have been responsible for the insertion of a platoon of Care Bears leading to the end of the Kosovo conflict in 1999.
An Israeli Defence Force spokesman refuted these claims stating that the pony force was a direct incursion by Hezbollah into sovereign Israeli soil.
CNN's Christiane Amanpour reports that Israeli F-16s have been bombarding the ponies for most of the morning and that the ponies seem completely unaffected by the bombing and are continuing their march.
In the days ahead the ponies’ intentions may become clear. For now Tel Aviv is preparing itself for the worst and sirens can be heard all over the city warning residents of the impending attack.
