“Scatter the enemies' body parts, make the skulls fly in the sky.”

Those are the words of one of the latest Hamas songs, broadcast on Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV on March 25, the same day the terror organization shot a rocket at central Israel. The rocket hit a private home, wounded seven people and killed four dogs.



The music video includes many images of violence and actual terror attacks, according to Palestinian Media Watch, the watchdog organization that located and translated the video.

Among the scenes showed during the rendition are stabbings, car rammings and explosions. It features 57-year-old Fatima Omar Mahmoud Al-Najjar, who in 2006 blew herself up near Israeli soldiers, injuring two.

The song begins with two short interviews with released female prisoners, one of whom attempted to carry out a suicide attack. She explains that her goal was to "kill as many Jews as possible,” according to PMW.

The full lyrics are as follows:

"Where are you, O brave one?

Where are you, O knight?

Stab, bomb, and make eyes weep.

Where are you O brave one;


Where are you, O, rebel;

Wrap the explosive belt around [your waist]

Where are you O brave one;

Where are you, O, rebel;

Wrap the explosive belt around [your waist]

For Al-Aqsa and the blood of the women of freedom,

Blow up the Zionists,

Don't fear.

Scatter the enemies' body parts, make the skulls fly in the sky"

 
This is not the first time Hamas played such a music video on its TV. According to PMW, in November 2018, Hamas aired a similar song that called for “Death to Israel” a half-hour before the IDF bombed the television station in retaliation for Hamas rockets.
