Ministry of Parks and Nature personnel discovered a new threat to Israel’s skies on Monday, when they found that Hamas had tied an incendiary device onto the foot of a falcon and let the hawk fly over the fence that separates Israel from the Gaza Strip.
The bird was spotted close to the western side of the border fence near the HaB’Sor stream. A large number of animals and wildlife have been killed due to the blazes caused by the kite and balloon bombs. In this instance, terrorists inside the Gaza Strip, took a live animal and used it as a weapon in order to create fire inside Israel.
YWN can’t help but question: Will those same animal-rights activists, who are so worried about the use of chickens by Kapparos, and who stage protests condemning Kapparos – will we hear from them now? Or are those the same “activists” who join in all the anti-Israel protests chanting “Free Free Palestine”, and encourage the BDS Movement?
A falcon attached to a rope with flammable material was found today near the Gaza Strip. Arson fires have been caused by incendiary materials flown from Gaza into Israel. Apparently it’s not enough to destroy nature with kites, now falcons are being used for terror as well. pic.twitter.com/j6noxwCwqS

Palestinian cruelty to animals: Hamas terrorists sent today a rare falcon & attached to one of its legs an incendiary device in order to torch Israeli fields near the Gaza border.
