Boy sings song that defines Be'er Sheva as part of "Palestine" on PA TV

Boy: "Oh flying bird, circling around,
My eyes protect you and Allah keeps you safe
By Allah, oh traveling [bird], I burn with envy
My country Palestine is beautiful...
In Be'er Sheva send greetings to this region
Long live Jericho with its pride...
Palestine - the remedy for my wounds
PA TV host: "Bravo, applause, applause, applause. Do you sing the song as you hear it? Is it how you sing it?"
Boy: "No, I like to add things... In the music lesson, the teacher sang this song. I looked for it on YouTube and saw the lyrics."
TV host: "You liked it."
Boy: "I liked it and didn't make any changes."
