For the fourth time in recent days, a kite rigged with a Molotov cocktail was flown by Palestinian terrorists from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Tuesday, the Hebrew news outlet Mako reported.

Firefighters were called to a field near Kibbutz Be’eri to extinguish a blaze ignited by the “kite bomb.”

The “kite terror” phenomenon began last Friday as part of the ongoing Hamas-orchestrated “Great March of Return” riots on the border.

One goal of the rioters in recent weeks has been to set Israeli agricultural fields adjacent to the border on fire.
