In the Palestinian Authority territory, summer camps for children and teenagers were once again organized by the PLO’s Higher Council for Youth and Sports, according to MEMRI.

At the joint opening ceremony of the youth camps in the town of Silwad near Ramallah, Jibril Rajoub, head of the Higher Council for Youth and Sports and secretary-general of Fatah’s Central Committee, stated: “Here in Silwad, the town of prisoners and martyrs, we announce the opening of the 2022 summer camps entitled Al-Masra wal-Asra.’ ”

Recreational activities were accompanied by the indoctrination of extremist values such as reverence for terrorists serving life sentences for murder; glorifying martyrdom and death; and instilling the ideal of “Palestine from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea,” an effort to deny Israel’s existence.

Summer-camp attendees learned about the lives and activities of six terrorists, whose portraits were hung at several of the camps:
