Gazan kids clowning with Kassams

Minister Yisrael Katz says children must stop being taught to hate or will suffer same fate their parents did for mistakes of 1948

A short video recently posted online shows a group of Palestinian children in Gaza simulating the firing of mortar shells at Israeli territory.

The video shows four kids walking in military fashion along a wired fence. One child is carrying a pipe and another is holding a fake launching pad, while the other two guard them with their toy rifles.

The kids are later seen setting up a “launch site” according to protocol. They then simulate firing a shell at an Israeli town and quickly flee the scene.

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz expressed his outrage with the video, warning that Palestinians children would pay the same price their parents did for the mistakes of 1948 if they did not mend their ways.

“The Palestinians in Gaza are continuously teaching their children to hate Israel and instill in them the ways of terror and the desire to eliminate Israel,” he said.
