25,000 Gaza youth finish Hamas-backed paramilitary training

Around 25,000 teenagers from the Gaza Strip on Wednesday finished a 10-day training course in paramilitary activities organized and supervised by Islamic Hamas movement’s armed wing.

The graduation ceremony was held at Gaza City’s al-Katiba square, a large public garden that used to be the first military installation for the Palestine Liberation Army in the 1960s.

The youths, aged between 15 and 21 years old, were trained by militants of the Hamas armed wing al-Qassam Brigades on how to get involved in gun battles and how to defend themselves.
