IDF Uncovers Hamas' System for Kite Terror

As terrorists continue to launch fiery kites from Gaza into southern Israel, destroying thousands of acres of Israeli farmland and nature reserves, the IDF has revealed who is behind this new terror tactic. The Jerusalem Post's Juliane Helmhold reports that Hamas has been giving orders to its terrorists, as well as providing them with the firebombs used to attack Israel:

Hamas is responsible for kite terrorism and these are not random acts by Gazan children and young adults, the IDF revealed on Sunday.

Arson terrorism, the phenomenon where firebombs are attached to kites and balloons and launched from the coastal enclave into Israeli territory and through which large areas of Israeli land around the Gaza Strip have been destroyed, is part of carefully planned acts of terror, the IDF spokesperson explained.

Specifying the mode of operation, the IDF spokesperson said that Hamas commanders order the launch of such kites and balloons, as well as oversee and direct the manufacturing.

The Hamas operatives who receive the orders, produce the kites and balloons and then attach firebombs that they receive from Hamas resources.

Kite production is carried out in a serial fashion and in large quantities.

Once the production is completed, the kites and balloons are launched from strategic points in the Gaza Strip in order to afflict as much damage to Israeli land as possible...
