In Gaza, young children were sent Monday to approach the border with Israel to bring sweets, cakes and chocolates to Islamic Jihad terrorists stationed at various strategic outposts.
The little boys brought the candies and other goodies to the terror organization's fighters in celebration of the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
The guerrilla fighters and guards who were stationed in the western area of the region said they were surprised to see the small children approaching. They thanked their mothers and promised “not to deviate from the path of jihad and resistance, despite all cost and difficulties.”
One of the terrorists, Abu Hamza, told the website of the Islamic Jihad's military wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, “We were encouraged by the wonderful children's visit. We expected them to talk like that, because they have experienced the crime of occupation, and they know they have rights that have been denied, and which must be returned by force.”
According to the report posted on the terror organization's website, one of the children who came along for the visit said he had waited with great excitement.
"Yesterday I planned with friends to visit the mujahideen,” said Mahmoud. “We waited for this moment. When I told my mother, she made special sweets for us to give [the fighters] and said to give them regards.”
He added that he too wants to join the Al-Quds Brigades, “to protect my people and my land, and to avenge the martyrs, the prisoners and the wounded.”
