The video shows funerals of "Martyrs," together with the reactions of their mothers, some of whom are making cries of joy, and some of whom are crying. It also shows very graphic and bloody images of children's bodies.
Lyrics of song in background:
"Let out cries of joy, O Martyr's (Shahid's) mother, let out cries of joy
Decorate the twilight hours at separation,
Place henna on his chest and tie bandages over every pain
Let out cries of joy, O Martyr's mother, let out cries of joy and wait for him, even if he is delayed
Light your lantern high and repeat: The fate of the dark of night and the oppressors is to disappear
Let out cries of joy, O Martyr's mother, let out cries of joy
Hold onto the olive tree at the foot of the mountain
Point into death and wait,
The path of the brave will bring you a hero today
Let out cries of joy, O Martyr's mother, let our cries of joy…
Embrace the small children and let out a loud call: ‘Sing, Arabs’"
