Israel has accused Hamas and other Palestinian militant organisations of co-ordinating the arson attacks but numerous perpetrators are believed to be teenagers and children as young as...
It appeared to be the first case of Gaza militants using birds to attack Israel and authorities said they were considering filing a complaint - under the appropriate global treaties - about the use of animals for militant activities.
Later, Mr Lieberman announced that Kerem Shalom would be closed for fuel deliveries and the distance which Gaza's fishermen would be allowed from the coast reduced from six nautical miles (12 km) to three.
However, Palestinians continue sending incendiary kites and balloons into Israel, causing harmful fires and injuries.

Almost 2,500 acres of agricultural land, national parks and nature reserves have been set alight by incendiary devices floated across from the Gaza Strip over the past two months.
Speaking at the same border visit, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "the Israeli military is prepared for any scenario".
Also Saturday, Nikolai Mladinov, the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, reportedly held talks with several Israeli and Egyptian officials in an attempt to restore calm to the region.
Israel struck at two Hamas facilities on Monday as Palestinians continued launching incendiary kites and balloons into Israel. Over 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire since the protests began on March 30.
It accuses Hamas of seeking to use the protests as cover for attacks against Israel. Organisers say the demonstrations aim to press demands for a right to lands lost to Israel in the 1948 war of its foundation and for the blockade to ease.
Egypt keeps tight restrictions on its border crossing with Gaza.
