Fire Balloons the New Kites

I've Been Thinking:
Incendiary balloons are the newest danger hitting Israel from Gaza. They are a version of the incendiary kite.
The principle is the same.
Gazans launch a helium filled balloon. Attached to the balloon is a lit Molotov cocktail. The balloon is lofted up and into the wind, propelled westward by the strong breeze of the Mediterranean Sea.
When the lit bottle explodes the balloon bursts, dropping a fireball into Israel, igniting whatever it hits.
Israel is knocking the balloons out of the sky with drones - just like they knock out the kites. The drones fly into the balloons while still in Gaza and they fall there.
