GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinians continued to launch incendiary kites and explosive balloons on Friday from Gaza towards Israeli communities surrounding the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that Palestinian youths continued to launch incendiary objects from the Gaza Strip towards southern Israel as factions in Gaza were preparing to agree an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire with Israel.

Sources added that the Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, was following the developments along the Gaza border throughout the 21st Friday of "The Great March of Return" protests.

Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites as a form of protest against Israel's nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees right of return to their homes and lands which are now known as Israel.
