It has been the fourth day in a row of Israeli warplanes attacks on Gaza.

Dozens of helium balloons laden with incendiary material have been deployed in recent days in a bid to pressure Israel to ease its blockade of the Gaza Strip and allow new economic projects. Israel also said it will stop shipments of fuel into Gaza in response.

The Palestinian activists have been flying flaming kites and balloons over the occupied lands by Israel as part of ongoing anti-occupation protests along Gaza border. 

The Gaza Strip, which has been reeling under a crippling Israeli blockade -- by air, land and sea -- since 2007, has seven border crossings linking it to the outside world.
