Fiery Falcon Found near Gaza

It seems that the arsonist terrorists bent on setting fire to southern Israel might have come up with a dastardly new tactic. The Times of Israel reports that a falcon was found in Israel tethered to an incendiary device, which could be a new terror method to set the Holy Land ablaze:

A falcon was discovered near the Gaza border on Monday with strings attached that contained flammable material.

The falcon was found dead, hanging by the attached string from a burned tree near the Nahal Habesor riverbed...

The falcon was found on a day when firefighters battled 15 separate fires started by Gazan kites and balloons in the border region...

Nature and Parks Authority officials who examined the bird said it wore a harness, suggesting it was a trained hunting bird, and strengthening speculation that it was deliberately sent to start fires, the Ynet news site reported...

If it was deliberately sent to Israel from Gaza to start fires, it would mark the first time Gazans have used an animal to start such fires...
