The military says its drones have been able to shoot down more than 90 per cent of the kites and flaming balloons, and that it will continue targeting them.

Palestinian rioters in Gaza prepare to set a kite on fire to be flown across the border into Israel, May 11, 2018.

Trump recently ordered tariffs on $50bn in Chinese goods in retaliation for what he claimed is theft of intellectual property . That means things like tourism and education, industries from which the United States benefits a lot more than China does.

A Palestinian man died in unclear circumstances near the Israel-Gaza border on Monday, hours after Israel and Hamas traded salvos over Palestinian incendiary kites.

The attacks targeted two Hamas military sites and a munitions manufacturing site, the military said in a statement, without specifying whether the raids had resulted in casualties.

The children are only allowed two hours a day for outdoor activities and spend the rest of their days inside a former Walmart . Vitiello said the policy is meant to deter families of immigrants from coming to the U.S.

Israeli troops have fired on the protesters, killing more than 120 Palestinians since the weekly demonstrations began on March 30. "You would be in your bomb shelters and you don't want that, especially when the construction of the barrier against the tunnels has not yet been completed".

Gazans began flying kites with burning rags attached to them during mass protests against the Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the territory. The Israeli military says militants have endangered civilians by using the protests as cover to carry out attacks and to try to breach the border fence.

Those who have condemned Israel have yet to come up with an alternative solution that Israel could have taken, except, like Prime Minister Ardern, that under the name of "proportionality" Israel should have let Israelis be killed to satisfy the worldwide community, some of whom, like New Zealand, are allegedly Israel's friends.
