It stated that the "motives and reasons" behind the "Equip A Fighter" campaign are to "raise the word of monotheism in Palestine and implement Allah's shari'a on Allah's land; to support the oppressed and counter the belligerence of the unbelievers; to liberate the sacred places and support the people of monotheism in Palestine; to support the call of Ahl Al-Sunnah Wal-Jama'ah [i.e. Sunnis] in confronting the groups of falsehood and deviation... to sponsor the orphans and the families of martyrs; and to support the heroic detainees and wounded [fighters]." The video reiterated the multiple ways donors could contact the campaign.[1]
