An initiative of Yesh Atid Party Knesset member Haim Jelin, the former head of the Eshkol Regional Council, the exhibit contains photos of nature reserves, fields and agricultural lands before and after being attacked by Gazans, who have launched hundreds of flying arson weapons into Israel.

The collection was curated by photographer Udi Israel, and displayed for ambassadors and diplomats from around the world.

“The destructive fire terrorism not only threatens the lives of Israeli citizens, but destroys the entire ecological system in the south and causes irrevocable environmental damage,” said Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon. “Hamas’s cruelty and cynicism, turning playthings into deadly weapons, knows no bounds.”

Danon submitted an official complaint three weeks ago to Amina J. Mohammed, the current deputy secretary-general of the United Nations and a former minister of Environment of Nigeria, asking her to condemn Hamas’s ecological terrorism, which has burned approximately 7,400 acres (or 11.5 square miles) of agricultural lands.
