Hamas terrorists have been busy in recent days launching hundreds of potentially lethal missiles on Israeli civilian populations. A new video from Hamas's TV reveals they have also been busy singing about launching the missiles on Israeli cities.

In a song broadcast Wednesday on Hamas's Al-Aqsa TV, the terrorist group calls to "blow up Tel Aviv" and "fire without asking" on the southern Eshkol Regional Council. The video was translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

Just a day later, the terrorist group rained another dozen or so rockets on Tel Aviv, after firing on the populous city on Wednesday and Tuesday night. Mortar fire on the Eshkol area Thursday night left one resident moderately to seriously wounded.

The song, which addresses Hamas's military wing the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades as "Al-Qassam," shows video of the massive rocket barrages being launched, along with Israelis hurrying to take shelter.

It also calls for suicide bombing attacks, saying "martyrdom-seeker (i.e. suicide bomber), O blaze, hurry, blow up Tel Aviv," while showing a cafe and bus destroyed in such an attack.

Hamas likewise called to "return Ashkelon," in a call to occupy the Israeli coastal city, adding "make them explode and write your history."

"O Al-Qassam, victory is from Allah / In Paradise there is a Garden (for martyrs) calling to you...Allah willing, we will hit and will not fail," continues the song.

The call for the Al-Qassam Brigades to "destroy Tel Aviv" comes after Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction on Wednesday declared it shares "one enemy, one goal" with Hamas.

In a post to Fatah's official Facebook page, the group showed a picture of an Al-Qassam Brigades terrorist with terrorists from Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade and Islamic Jihad's Al-Quds Brigades, along with the words "brothers-in-arms."
