Hamas Summer Camps for Kids Include Military Training – Hazem Balousha (Al-Monitor)

    In the streets surrounding the Saraya neighborhood in central Gaza City, boys are lined up in groups like military battalions, wearing paramilitary clothes and surrounded by supervisors in full uniform and carrying weapons, while loudspeakers chant fiery Hamas anthems calling for jihad.

      About 100,000 students joined the “Pioneers of Liberation” summer camps organized this year by Hamas.

    Hamas summer camp coordinator Mussa Al-Samak explained that the camps are aimed at enhancing the campers’ awareness of the liberation of “all of Palestine.”

    He said the camps are seeking “to sow the love of the homeland and the liberation of Palestine in the souls of the youth, so that this generation brings us to the stage of liberation,” building a generation that could liberate Jerusalem and bring the refugees back to their homes.

    The logo for the camps features a map of Palestine from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
