The face of Israel’s burnt out south is on display at the UN in New York from August 2-10.

The exhibit, “The Effects of Arson Kites on the South of Israel,” involves nine pictures by nine Israeli photographers and was organized by Israel’s Mission to the UN.

Thousands of acres of fields and forests have been burnt as a result of the flaming kites and balloons Palestinians have launched at Israel’s southern border from Gaza.

The United Nations has repeatedly failed to condemn Hamas violence against Israel and has instead accused Israel of harming innocent Palestinians who are participating in the Great March of Return that began on Mach 30.

Israel has argued that the Great March of Return is a violent attack on its borders.
