The Iranian-funded terror proxy has been holding summer camps for multiple weeks, training the younger generation for future acts of violence.
Another year, another Hamas training camp in Gaza targeted the younger generation to prepare it for conflict with Israel. The summer camps reportedly take place on an annual basis, recruiting children, some of whom haven’t yet reached their teenage years. As reported by The Times of Israel, the camp is called “Pioneers of Liberation”.
“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
-Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir
Children are dressed in Hamas uniforms throughout the camp, handling weapons, and it is even reported that mock-kidnappings of Israeli soldiers take place. Taking the disturbing and gruesome reality even further, this year’s camp included simulation programs wherein these children were being trained to shoot IDF (Israel Defense Forces) soldiers and Israeli police.
Previous training drills have involved stoning and/or stabbing Israeli police. Children were also recorded working through various obstacle courses. Photos on social media even showed one mechanism that appeared to be a replica of a Hamas terror tunnel used to enter Israel illegally.
