Trump’s envoy slams Hamas for kites as more land near Israeli homes
Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trumps special Middle East envoy, condemned Hamas Tuesday for its “attack kites,” tweeting “they are not harmless playthings or metaphors for freedom. They are deployed as propaganda and an indiscriminate weapon against Israel. They have started hundreds of fires, destroyed thousands of acres and wasted millions of dollars,” he said.
More burning kites from Gaza Tuesday caused two big fires: One, a brush fire near residential buildings at Moshav Netiv Ha’Asara; another, outside the Sapir college in Sderot. Firefighters on daily duty for the past month outside the Gaza Strip were on hand to extinguish both blazes.
