Three Israeli men were detained for questioning Friday after a burning kite they tried to fly into the Gaza Strip fell on the Israeli side of the border, setting off a small brushfire.

Ran Karmi Buzaglo, the only man whose name was released, later claimed the stunt was an effort to make a video “to amuse and strengthen the morale of local residents who have suffered as a result of the ‘kite terrorism.’”

The fire was quickly extinguished and the three men were taken into police custody for questioning. A video of the incident filmed by one of the three shows Karmi Buzaglo and a second man setting fire to a piece of cloth tied to a kite and trying to fly it into Gaza. It ends with the kite falling inside Israeli, followed by someone shouting “no, no, no.”

In another video filmed before the incident, Karmi Buzaglo addresses Hamas political chief Ismail Haniyeh in Arabic, saying: “Listen, man, don’t toy with us,” before continuing in Hebrew: “We are here on the Gaza border. We will teach them how to do it right. We have prepared gifts for them. Soon they will understand that everything they know how to do, we know how to do better.”
