Shaked: Incendiary kites are no less serious than mortars

Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked visited Israeli communities bordering the Gaza Strip today that have suffered from incendiary kites and balloons launched from the nearby Palestinian coastal enclave, a statement released by Shaked's office said.
"Incendiary kites are no less serious than mortars; the response to a kite in the Gaza border region must be the same as the response to a missile fired at Ashkelon," Shaked said. "The government must hit back with an iron fist against those launching incendiary kites and terrorists."
"Even a child's daily chores, such as taking the dogs out for a walk, has become an impossible mission," she said.
Shaked toured fields that had burned as a result of incendiary kites launched from Gaza, as well as a neutralized Hamas terror tunnel that penetrates Israeli territory.
