Gazans protesting along the Gaza border have begun attaching firebombs to kites to fly over the fence into Israel in a new tactic as the riots enter their fourth week.
For protests set for Friday, Gazans were hoping to send dozens of kites over the fence, including some carrying notes telling Israelis “there is no place for you in Palestine.”
On the eve of Friday’s protests, a group of terrorists worked to create the flying firebombs under a tree in an olive orchard hundreds of meters from the Israeli border east of Gaza City.
As AFP watched, three young men carried one kite dozens of meters towards the border before stopping to set the bottle alight.
With the flame lit, they sent it into the air and cut the thread — watching as it floated over the border and crashed, causing a small fire.
“We use the kites to send a message,” one proud teen terrorist said.
