(JNS.org) The Palestinian terrorist organization Islamic Jihad held a summer camp in order to groom what a spokesman called a “strong resisting generation” of Palestinians to fight Israel.

 “We need to prepare our children to defend themselves, and protect themselves against Israeli persecution and crimes,” Daoud Shibab told Ma’an News Agency on Wednesday.

“We do not hide the fact that we are working on raising a strong resisting generation that is ready to defend themselves, their families and their brothers when the need arises,” Shibab said.

The Islamic Jihad camp included several military training exercises. Photos of the camp published by Ma’an News Agencyshow participating children wearing military fatigues, sporting face paint, and carrying AK-47s.
