Hamas Recruiting Female Terrorists

This summer, Hamas has again spread its terrorist tentacles over the people of Gaza, "educating" children in the ways of anti-Semitism and violence. So, too, reports JNS, is it extending its reach to women, recruiting female terrorists as young as 15 years old:

Hamas is reportedly trying to recruit more women into its ranks and is now offering weapons training programs for teenage girls as young as 15, Israel Hayomreported Monday.

Prior or 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, the Gaza Strip’s ruler allowed women to join the terrorist organization only as support staff, but after the conflict ended, Hamas apparently also began recruiting women for active duty.

Hamas is reportedly actively recruiting girls and women between the ages of 15 and 25, and teaching them how to fire handguns and rifles. Women who join the organization are reportedly also offered hand-to-hand combat training, as well as field skills training such as learning how to scale walls and learning how to avoid obstacles like burning tires.
