Minister calls for targeted killings of Gaza kite bombers, Hamas leaders
Trump’s Mideast envoy Greenblatt says airborne firebombs are ‘indiscriminate weapons,’ not ‘harmless playthings or metaphors for freedom’
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said Tuesday that Israel should initiate a program of assassinations targeting those who fly burning kites from Gaza to Israel, as well as Hamas leaders.
Since the “March of Return” protests began along the Gaza border at the end of March, hundreds of kites have been flown into Israel outfitted with Molotov cocktails and containers of burning fuel, setting fire to large swaths of land. Firefighters, soldiers and local residents have worked on an almost daily basis to try to contain fires in Israeli fields ignited by the burning kites
