(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) According to information published by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Hamas terrorist group’s “military wing,” the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, is operating summer camps in the Gaza Strip offering military training for young Palestinians.

Hamas conducted a large publicity campaign to recruit Gaza’s youths to attend the camps. MEMRI said the camps are “part of Hamas’s efforts to provide military training to the Gaza population, specifically the youth, and prepare them for the next round of fighting with Israel.”

The camps are divided into four groups: ages 15-17, 18-25, 25 and over, and graduates of previous camps.
