After weeks of dealing with terrorism in the form of incendiary kites and balloons from Gaza, residents of southern Israel are stepping up their protest.

A new video released by Yesh Atid MK Haim Jelin shows the massive damage caused to crops and wheat fields by arsonists. The video will be sent to foreign embassies and UN institutions around the world.

About 25,000 acres of farmland have been burned over the past weeks as a result of the fires caused by incendiary kites and balloons. A large number of animals have died as well.

"I want everyone to see what's going on and how much damage is being caused by Hamas' kite terrorism," Jelin said. "We've translated the video into English and Spanish, and we'll also translate it into Arabic so that it reaches everywhere."

On Thursday alone, the IDF fired warning shots at three different groups of Palestinians who were preparing to fly incendiary kites and balloons.
