PA urges youth to seek Martyrdom-death, which it presents as a “wedding”

Footage is shown from “Martyrs’” funeral procession

 

Song: “Mother, in a new dress accompany me to [my] wedding. I came to you as a Martyr, O mother, O mother.”

 

Official PA TV host: “This song was spread on social media and shows one of the youths during the confrontations with the occupation soldiers in Hebron. Perhaps there is a message in it: That even the living youth will not return to their mothers alive, but will be married off in a procession as Martyrs.

 

The video from social media is shown.
