Israeli airstrike injures 2 Palestinians in Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes targeted and injured two Palestinians in the northern besieged Gaza Strip on Friday.

According to Ynet news outlet, Israeli warplanes fired at least one missile targeting a group of Palestinians, who identify themselves as the "incendiary kites unit," after the unit was allegedly seen launching incendiary kites and balloons into southern Israel.

Medical sources confirmed that two Palestinians were injured and were immediately transferred to the Beit Hanoun hospital.

The identities of the two injured remained unknown.

It is noteworthy that this airstrike, as well as the launch of incendiary objects is the first to have taken place in recent weeks.

In July, it was reported that about 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 into Israel.

Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites as a form of protest against Israel's nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees right of return to their homes and lands which are now known as Israel.
