If you attempt to fly one from within the Gaza strip and attach some kind of incendiary contraption to it as it takes on the wind towards Israel, then you just might find yourself in the crosshairs. Literally.

But if you attempt to fly one from Israel and attach some kind of incendiary contraption to it as it takes on the wind towards Gaza, you get arrested and get to tell the world you were just making a “humorous video”.

I kid you not.
