In a November 5, 2022 show on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza), Gaza-based Hamas terrorist Musab Al-Hashlamoun called on Palestinians in the West Bank to carry out attacks against Israelis. He said that they should use YouTube and social media to learn how to use weapons effectively so that they can kill as many Israeli "occupiers" as possible before being "martyred". He also said that the people of Hebron should use the M-16 rifles in their possession to carry out such attacks, adding: "You have this weapon in your hands. Allah is going to ask you about it. Don't miss out."
Al-Hashlamoun is originally from Hebron and has been involved in several terrorist attacks. Notably, shortly after being released from an Israeli prison as part of a 2004 prisoner exchange deal, he was involved in an attack in Beer Sheva, Israel that left 16 civilians, including one child, dead. Al-Hashlamoun was again apprehended and imprisoned, but was again released and deported to Gaza in 2011 as part of the Shalit prisoner exchange.
Musab Al-Hashlamoun: "The message I want to convey to everyone is this: You have YouTube. You have social media. Do not use it to communicate, but learn from it, use it to your benefit. It is a double-edged sword. Open YouTube, and write: 'How to use a weapon.' You do not have to say: "I don't know how to use weapons." Take an axe.
"Most of our young guys who are martyred are being martyred because they are burning with zeal to kill the enemy. Kill them, but [first] learn the very simple basics that will protect you, so that you can keep killing the occupiers for as long as possible, and so you can kill as many of them as possible. So take an axe, learn to use the very simple weapons, rear sight and front sight, how to hold a weapon... All the M-16 rifles, all the other 'M's...
"Oh people of Hebron, you have 'M' [rifles] that the world's greatest snipers would want. You are talking about long M-16s... They are very very simple. They are used for sniping. What are you waiting for?" You have this weapon in your hands. Allah is going to ask you about it. Don't miss out!"
