GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three fires broke out, on Monday evening, in Israeli communities surrounding the besieged Gaza Strip as incendiary balloons landed in the area.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that three fires broke out and spread to greenhouses in the Ashkelon area due to incendiary balloons launched from Gaza.

Firefighting crews arrived to the area that caught fire and managed to control the flames; no injuries were reported.

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.
