Palestinian Militant Training

With a war looming in Israel over Palestinian land, it is a bit unsettling to Israeli supporters to see how the Palestinian militants are aggressively training new recruits so that they can hold their own if such a war comes to pass.

It is no secret that Palestinian soldiers are no match for Israeli Tanks, Helicopters, Gun Boats and Fighter Jets, but it is still disconcerting to imagine these militants entering Israel proper and attacking military posts, or worse yet civilians.

These photos are primarily taken in Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip and seem to represent the Palestinian Islamic Jihad sect as well as the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).
