Israelis try to fly flaming kite into Gaza, start fire in Israel

Three Israelis are detained by IDF troops after they attempt to fly a flaming kite toward Gaza.

The kite falls short of the border and sparks a fire near Kibbutz Nahal Oz.

Police say the fire was extinguished and the three were handed over for questioning.

Reports describe one of those detained as a far-right activist.

“There are extremists and there are idiots. The worst is a mix of the two,” tweets Zionist Union MK Amir Peretz.
