Gazans challenge Israel’s high-tech defenses with flaming kites

Tuesday 05:10 GMT

The kites started coming in April, not long after Gazans held their first in a series of weekly demonstrations demanding the return of land Palestinians lost when Israel was created and highlighting the humanitarian crisis facing the strip.

Outfitted with rags dipped in petrol, smoldering embers, coals and, more recently lightweight explosive devices, the kites are the latest weapon used by Palestinians against Israelis in their decades-old conflict.

Wednesday 23:55 GMT
