Drone Racers vs. Incendiary Kites

So, after the palestinians began using kites (yes, kites) to set fire to Israeli farms and forests, now the IDF has begun using drones to intercept the incendiary kites.

The age of low-end drone warfare is officially upon us, and nowhere is this reality being made more apparent than along the Gaza-Israel border. Weeks of violent protests by Palestinians along the fence-line have given birth to 'incendiary kites' as a robust asymmetric warfare tactic that we detailed in a previous piece. Now Israel is putting hobby-like drones to use to knock down those flaming kites, and even to release tear gas on protesters from across the fence-line.

It is, simultaneously, funny and sad.

Seems to me like we need a foreign enforced no-go one to keep both sides apart. The whole thing is sad.
