Israel bans condoms from entering Gaza

New Israeli regulations stipulates that condoms will not be allowed to enter the Gaza Strip as it might be used in violent actions, such as flying kites. 

Times of Israel published last week a report with the title ‘Condoms, kites and birthday balloons: 'Silly' Gaza weapons could lead to real war.’

The report states that the Palestinians in Gaza are relentlessly flying a variety of airborne devices attached to flammable materials to be launched into Israel near the Israeli Gaza, causing hundreds of fires and millions of shekels in damage.

Palestinians rely on the gentle Mediterranean coastal breeze to push their new weapons across the border.

The report ignored the fact that the Israeli occupation army had killed 138 Palestinians and injured 14,700 including women, children, medics and journalists in Gaza since the beginning of the Great Return March on Palestinian land on March 30, 2018.

Given their limited resources, Palestinians rely on such an innovative way to retaliate.  No Israeli casualties were reported during the same time period.

Paper planes are the Israeli occupation army's worst nightmares. Palestinian youths launched 600 kites from Gaza during the Great Return March.

Israel claimed it intercepted 400 kites. There was an unconfirmed report that these kites have brought down 10 Israeli drone aircraft.

It is rather amazing how the rest of the world uses condoms to provide protection from both pregnancy and STDs, whereas Palestinians use it as a weapon against their ruthless Zionist occupiers.
