Israel’s Ministry of Agriculture, the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Finance spearheaded the decision, according to a report in Ynet, after the summer of 2018 saw the destruction of half the forests near Gaza by terrorists who purposefully ignited them with incendiary kites, balloons and Molotov cocktails.
