Earlier Israeli media had reported that Tel Aviv may begin carrying out assassinations by air strikes, especially those actively preparing balloons or kites for launching.

Flying kites and balloons has become a new mode of resistance since Palestinians began their weekly “right to return” protests near a fence separating the Gaza strip from Israel on March 30.

Meanwhile, Beirut based Hezbollah owned Al-Manar TV reports that IDF, what they call as Israeli Occupation Force (IOF) has said that its aircraft on Sunday targeted a “leading figure” behind the launching of balloons and kites into occupied territories from the besieged Gaza Strip.

Around two million people live in Gaza, most of them stateless descendants of refugees from the occupied land, now Israel. Egypt and Israel, both US allies, maintain a blockade of the strip causing an economic crisis and collapse in living standards over the past decade.

Israeli officials claim that the kites and balloons launched by Palestinians have burned thousands of acres of farmland, forests and natural reserves in the region around the Gaza strip.
