This past Friday Hamas terrorists sent several flying firebombs, using kites, over the Israel-Gaza fence, hoping to set fire to nearby Israeli communities and fields. Instead of using their creativity to help humankind, they make kite bombs to kill and injure innocent Israelis.

These acts of terror ,in addition to the mass march on the border fence, are really just a distraction. They are used by Hamas to hide the acts of sabotage they are trying to inclict upon the border fence to allow for more serious terror acts.

Their Message is Clear

The message on one of these kites, carrying the Nazi flag, leaves no room for doubt as to Hamas’ objective – Israel’s annihilation.

#Gazan terrorists warn Israel that they have to leave ASAP or else they will send their super fabulous kites with Molotov cocktails attached to burn Israel.

During the riots yesterday, in which a total of approximately 10,000 Palestinians participated, the terror organizations in the Gaza Strip, headed by Hamas, continued to use civilians, including youth and children, as a disguise for different terror acts to damage security infrastructures.

The attached photo depicts one of the methods to carry out terror attacks and destroy infrastructure under the guise of the smoke and riots: a squad of terrorist that includes young boys (1) burn the security infrastructure (2) and another squad waits and pulls (3) the security infrastructure that was ignited with a rope (4) until it is uprooted, so that an infiltration into Israel and carrying out terror attacks within Israeli territory are possible:

During the riots, burning tires were used to create smokescreens in order to mask attempts to damage the protective infrastructures, rocks were hurled at IDF troops and kites with burning items attached to them were flown, with the intention of igniting fires in Israeli territory.

In the morning hours (Friday) the IDF distributed leaflets warning against approaching the fence. However, the terror organizations in the Gaza Strip continue to exploit civilians, including many youth and children. Putting them in unnecessary danger. Yet no world condemnation against that.

The IDF will not allow the security infrastructure to be breached. The army will act in order to fulfill its duty to protect the civilians and sovereignty of the State of Israel.
