In video - Israeli defense system fails

Aug. 8, 2018 3:30 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 8, 2018 3:30 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A video shared by an Israeli news outlet showed the failure of the Israeli defense system, which deals with intercepting incendiary kites and balloons launched from the besieged Gaza Strip towards southern Israel.

According to the Israeli Hebrew-language 0404 news outlet, the Israeli defense system did not succeed in intercepting simple Palestinian inventions such as the incendiary balloons. 

A majority of the incendiary kites and balloons fell within Israeli borders.

The defense system does not intercept all of the incendiary objects, but only a few, while a large number falls inside Israeli borders, resulting in intensive damages to thousands of acres of land along the borders. 

Since April, Palestinians have launched hundreds of incendiary kites and balloons from the Gaza Strip towards the Israeli communities surrounding the Gaza borders.

The "incendiary kites unit" of the Gaza Strip had announced that the peaceful Palestinian resistance will continue until their demands are met and until the nearly 12-year Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is lifted.

The video below shows the Israeli defense system not succeeding at intercepting most of the incendiary balloons:
