Hamas Military Wing Summer Camp: Teens Enact Scenes from Al-Aqsa Mosque Standoff, "Kill" Israeli Soldiers, "Liberate" Al-Aqsa Mosque

In the final ceremony of a summer camp in Gaza, teens play-acted a scene of storming the security measures around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, stabbing and killing Israeli soldiers and "liberating" the mosque. Several dozen youngsters prayed outside a makeshift "electronic gate” manned by teens dressed as Israeli soldiers and carrying mock rifles. The group pelts the soldiers with paper rocks, and amid the ensuing attack, the announcer declares that "one martyr has fallen while carrying out a stabbing operation and killing one of the Zionist pigs." Other teens, dressed as 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades militants, join the fray, ultimately "blowing up" the security measures and "liberating the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the defilement of the occupation." Footage of the enactment was posted on the Palestinian Al-Risala Media YouTube channel on July 19.

Children: "We want to pray in the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Guards: "Go away!"

Children: "We will not go!"

Call for Prayer: "Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar. Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar."

[...]

Speaker: "Shame on you Muslims! We want to liberate Al-Aqsa! Yes, oh Arabs, we want to liberate Al-Aqsa!"

Children: "Allah Akbar."

(Children throw balls of paper at students dressed as Israeli soldiers standing by mock security gate.)

Speaker: "One martyr has fallen while carrying out a stabbing operation, and killing one of the Zionist pigs. Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah! Another martyr has fallen."

(Children carry away a fallen "martyr.")

[...]

"Now groups from the 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades will liberate the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Children: "With our souls and our blood we will redeem you, oh Al-Aqsa! With our souls and our blood we will redeem you, oh Al-Aqsa!"

Speaker: "A mujahid is now placing an explosive on the electric gate. The mujahideen are tearing down the electronic gate, and all the barriers surrounding the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. The mujahideen are confronting the Zionist pigs and wiping them out. They are liberating the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. I want everybody to chant together: Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

Children: "Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

Speaker: "Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

Children: "Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

Speaker: "Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

Children: "Allah Akbar! All praise to Allah!"

[...]

Child: "Oh sons of our people, who are waging ribat [guard duty]! Oh our Arab and Islamic nation! Oh our people in the West Bank! Oh prisoners of freedom and honor! We in the 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades address you today: We are with you in the 'Promise of the Hereafter' battle – the battle for the liberation of Jerusalem and of Palestine in its entirety. This is a battle to break the chains, to shatter the shackles, and to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the defilement of the occupation."
