BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The remains of an incendiary kite was found on Monday in a vineyard belonging to the illegal Israeli settlement of Ariel, one of the largest settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory.

According to Hebrew-language news outlet, the incendiary kite was launched from the northern West Bank district of Nablus. The kite sparked a small fire in the northern West Bank area, however was extinguished immediately.

No injuries nor damages were reported.

Israeli security sources said that this was not the first time Palestinians attempted to launch incendiary kites or balloons imitating kite launchers from Gaza.

Sources added that last month an incendiary balloon was launched from the Palestinian city of Beit Jala, in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, towards central Israel, and landed in the illegal Israeli settlement of Har Gilo.

Over the last four months, southern Israel has experienced hundreds of fires due to the continuous launch of incendiary kites and balloons from besieged Gaza. In July, about 6,000 dunams (1482.6 acres) of agricultural produce as well as thousands of dunams of open fields were burned.
