Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported that hundreds of dunums of land were burned on Tuesday by flaming kites launched from Gaza.
The Hebrew newspaper said that Palestinian youths on Tuesday flew 17 flaming kites toward Israeli settlements near Gaza’s eastern border.
Since the start of the Great March of Return in the Gaza Strip, dozens of kites made by Palestinian youths with flaming rags attached to their tails have been launched toward settler farmlands near the border fence causing heavy losses.
The flaming kites are one of the tools used by Palestinian youths to confuse the Israeli snipers stationed at the border fence to shoot peaceful protesters.
