Hamas, the terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip, is working hard to convince the world that the protests taking place in Gaza are “peaceful”. This could not be further from the truth.

Hamas themselves have now stated that they will be paying money to the families of the “martyrs” as well as compensating those who have been injured.

The Times of Israel reports:

In a statement, a Hamas spokesperson pledged $3,000 (£2,140) to the relatives of those killed by Israeli fire. Palestinians injured by Israeli troops in the clashes would receive $200-$500 (£140-£350) in compensation, depending on the level of injury, the Hamas spokesman said.

The payments were being provided “in light of the difficult economic conditions experienced by our people in the Gaza Strip as a result of the continued Israeli siege,” Hamas said.

The news comes as Honest Reporting discovered that now at least 16 of the 19 Palestinian who have been killed are terrorists linked to Hamas and other Islamist groups in Gaza.

Hamas has spent more than $10 million (£7 million) in organising and carrying out these violent riots and is seemingly willing to spend even more money to carry out its plans.

Unfortunately, Palestinian deaths work well for Hamas’s political aims. Whilst the evidence clearly shows that these terrorists, many of them armed, are being killed while either shooting at Israeli soldiers or trying to break into Israel, the world’s media and global political bodies are taking the bait and blaming Israel regardless.

This week, Palestinian “activists” chanted “death is better than humiliation” as they drove into a tent camp in a barley field near Gaza’s border ahead of planned protests on Friday.

It appears that there are more willing pawns for Hamas’s deadly riots who are willing to lay their lives down in their futile pursuit of destroying Israel. And when they do, Hamas will be there to reward the “martyrs” financially.
