Children of Sderot Counter Kite Terror with Kite Festival

As terror kites from Gaza ignited field fires along Israeli border communities, children from Sderot flew homemade kites decorated with positive messages, reports Israel21c.

Hundreds of helium balloons and kites bearing flammable materials have been launched from Gaza since March 30, killing wildlife and incinerating thousands of acres of forests and agricultural fields in Israeli border communities.

In a therapeutic response to the kite terrorists operating just 33 kilometers from their city, officials in Sderot invited parents and children to create and launch colorful handmade kites bearing positive messages…

“As opposed to our neighbors from the Gaza Strip who have turned the wonderful hobby of flying kites into an act of terrorism, with terrible damage to agriculture, the children of Sderot and the surrounding communities are returning the kite to its source – from preparation to flying it into the sky and hoping that it will not fall,” said Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi.
