CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - Hamas-affiliated Palestinian youth graduating from summer military training camps are ready to fight the Zionist occupiers (Israel).
Some 200 teenagers took part in a graduation ceremony at a stadium in Gaza City Sunday.
Dressed in uniforms of Izz al-Din al-Qassam, the military wing of the Hamas terror organization, students showed off their newly acquired skills in drills replicating graduation ceremonies for Palestinian police and security forces.
According to The Associated Press, youth leaped through hoops set afire, detonated explosives, and demonstrated their agility leaping over one another while older Hamas gunmen fired assault rifles in the air.
"They are tomorrow's leaders," shouted senior Hamas official Khalil Hayyeh.
The tadhiyeh (temporary calm), which began June 19, allowed Hamas freedom to train its youngsters.
"There's no doubt that the stability and calm created a good atmosphere that has allowed us to make more summer camps and oversee the youths," Ismail Ridwan told AP.
