A new Hamas propaganda video celebrates the murder of a 16-year-old in 2011.


The video addresses Israelis in Hebrew opening with the question: "Do you remember?" It then shows footage from a 2011 attack in which Hamas struck a school bus with an anti-tank missile. The clip ends with footage of an ambulance carrying Daniel Viflic, a 16-year-old Israeli, who later died of his wounds.


The  Hamas video ends with the promise of more killings:

"We will hunt down cowards like you in your dens."

Throughout the current conflict between terror organization Hamas and Israel, as Palestinian Media Watch has reported, Hamas TV has been broadcasting propaganda videos in Arabic and in Hebrew as part of its campaign  to boost morale among Palestinians and intimidate Israelis. 


In an effort to boost morale, Hamas is also deceiving the Palestinian public about its failures in the current conflict, claiming that Israel is hiding a high death toll.


The following are longer excerpts of Hamas' videos described above:


Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) broadcast the following video in Hebrew:

"[Do] you remember?
