Hamas is continuing to incite youths in Gaza towards violence against Israelis. During a Hamas rally held in Gaza on March 6, two boys rapped about fighting “the occupation”.

"Through the tunnels, we will capture soldiers and fight Jews," they rapped in the rally, which was broadcast on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

A clip released by MEMRI last month showed footage from a youth camp organized by Hamas’s so-called “military wing”, in which young cadets learn how to use weapons and simulate the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier.

A previous clip shows a televised graduation ceremony for a similar Hamas youth camp in Gaza. At the ceremony, suicide terror attacks against the “Zionist enemy” were glorified by Hamas officials.

Hamas has also in the past released a cartoon honoring its “military wing,” and last year began a program to teach “resistance” to Israel in Gaza’s public school system.

Just this week, the spokesman of Hamas’s “military wing” indicated that the group will continue its quest to kidnap IDF soldiers, in order to use them as bargaining chips to secure the release of terrorists from Israeli prisons.
