Incendiary kites cause 678 fires in 100 days at Gaza borders

July 10, 2018 2:21 P.M. (Updated: July 10, 2018 2:21 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Thirty-three fires broke out on Sunday in forests and agricultural areas in Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza Strip borders, by incendiary kites and balloons.

Israeli firefighters have been attempting to extinguish all the fires outside the Gaza borders, and were able to control most of the flames within minutes, except for one fire that took longer to manage.

Some 6,000 dunams (1482.6 acres) of agricultural produce as well as thousands of dunams of open fields were burned due to about 678 fires caused by incendiary kites and balloons flown from inside the Gaza Strip.
