Scorched fields on Gaza border

Youths in Gaza started launching incendiary balloons and kites over the border into Israel earlier this year to protest Israel's blockade of the strip. Southern Israel's nature reserves have been devastated. The photo shows Be'eri nature reserve, green the day before, with Gaza City in the background.
