Jerusalem: Following the footsteps of the dreaded Islamic State group, a Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist organisation, popularly known as Hamas, has been providing young children with military training to stab Israeli soldiers.
According to a report in the Mirror, children as young as 10 are being provided military training and and being taught how to use assault rifles in several camps organised by Hamas.
The camps were attended by around 30,000 children as well as teenagers, Middle East Research Group said.
One of the camps was named as 'Knife camp', where children were taught how to stab an enemy. It comes after the wave of increasing stabbing incidents in Israel.
Apart from being taught how to use knives and rifles, children were also encouraged to participate in mock drills conducted by jihadists. They were also to practically demonstrate attacks.
The Hamas summer training camps were dedicated to Al-Quds Intifada, a Palestinian name for attacks on Israelis in Jerusalem.
