Israeli aircraft shells, destroys empty vehicle east of Gaza city

The army warned that it had the "intelligence knowledge and operational capability" to conduct additional strikes if the balloon and kite attacks continued.

IDF policy until now had been to fire warning shots and prevent incendiary balloons and kites from entering Israeli airspace.

The Israeli army's latest attack is believed to deter the flaming kites and balloons unit. Moreover, Israeli jets struck two Hamas observation points in retaliation for the ongoing "agricultural terrorism", effectively reinforcing its policy of holding Gaza's rulers responsible for any acts of aggression emanating from the Palestinian enclave.

On Sunday, the IDF targeted a cell and vehicle in the Gaza Strip used for launching the incendiary devices, after several such attacks earlier in the day were said to have sparked a number of blazes that ravaged fields, nature reserves and nearly reached a military outpost.

Messi misses penalty as Argentina draw
Argentina's build-up play was very slow as they passed the ball from side to side and most often, without any sense of urgency. In a game where Messi failed to respond to Cristiano Ronaldo's 3 goal heroics, Sergio Aguero proved that he is a top marksman.

The Israeli army on Saturday wounded two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip attempting to launch incendiary balloons across the border into Israel, officials said.

Israeli troops have fired on the protesters, killing more than 100 since the weekly demonstrations began in March. "You would be in your bomb shelters and you don't want that, especially when the construction of the barrier against the tunnels has not yet been completed".

Later on Sunday, Israeli war jets targeted with three separate missiles a military facility that belongs to Hamas movement's militants in central Gaza Strip, also causing no injuries.

Gazans began flying kites with burning rags attached to them during mass protests against the crippling Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the territory. These are recognised terrorists organisations whose own leaders called upon their members to breach the border fence to murder Israel soldiers and civilians. The territory has been controlled by Hamas for more than a decade, during which it has fought three wars against Israel.
