While most children attend camps that focus on healthy extracurricular activities, youth in Gaza are recruited to attend terror-training camps where they learn how to kill Israelis.
As the summer season kicks in and children attend fun camps around the world, Hamas is training thousands of children to become terrorists.
Hamas’ Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades, its military wing, launched on Saturday its annual summer training camps in the Gaza Strip for over 30,000 middle and high school students.
In a statement, Hamas said that its summer training camps, this year called “Talae Al Tahrir” (Vanguards of Liberation), provide Palestinian youth with “athletic games, scouts activities, as well as providing religion classes.”
Photos released from the first day of camp by Hamas show the youth undergoing military training.
“We prepare the Palestinian generations so they will be fully prepared for defending Palestinian soil and the Palestinian people,” Hamas’ statement read.
These annual summer events include weapons and explosives training, instruction in the techniques behind kidnappings and terror attacks and terror indoctrination.
Since its violent rise to power in the Gaza Strip in 2007, Hamas has been running these camps for the children of Gaza. The experience aims to promote Hamas’ ideology and Hamas terrorists encourage them to participate in actual military operations.
The Islamic Jihad offers a similar experience.
The ultimate objective of these summer camps, besides training and indoctrination, is for the youth to act as an auxiliary force in a future confrontation with Israel.
