Children in PLO summer camp wear shirts with map of Palestine erasing Israel

Headline: “The Democratic Front visited the Pioneers of Return [summer] camp at Al-Shati [refugee camp] and emphasized the right of return”
“Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) political bureau member Talal Abu Tharifa emphasized that the wide participation in the Pioneers of Return [Summer] Camp, which is run by the PLO Department for Palestinian Refugee Affairs in the Gaza Strip refugee camps, constitutes clear proof of the adherence of our refugee Palestinian people to its land and its right to return to Palestine from which it was expelled against its will.”

A picture in the article shows child camp participants wearing the camp’s T-shirt, on which is written: “Pioneers of Return Camp.” Under the text appears the symbol of the PLO that includes the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas.
