Song published on YouTube on Oct. 10, 2014
Title: "On the Borders"
"The [Izz Al-Din] Al-Qassam people went out to the borders
To capture soldiers
And raise the morale
Going, going, [Izz Al-Din] Al-Qassam people are winning
Allah willing, tomorrow our prisoners will leave their prison cells (i.e., in exchange deal with Israel for captured soldiers)
And from below and above ground
Fire is lit in the battlefields
Salute the lions of honor, who roar standing tall
The 'Devoured Chaff' battle (i.e., 2014 Gaza War)
Remains [a source of] honor and a wonder
[Ahmed] Al-Ja'abari (i.e., planner of numerous Hamas terror attacks) and [Abd Al-Aziz] Al-Rantisi (i.e., co-founder of Hamas), giving the lethal blow"

Ahmed Al-Ja'abari was a member of Hamas' political bureau and, beginning in 2002, the operational commander of Hamas' military wing, the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades. Israel holds him responsible for all terrorist activities against Israel originating from the Gaza Strip between 2002 and his death in 2012, including numerous suicide bombings that killed hundreds of Israeli civilians and soldiers. He was involved in the abduction of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit (June 25, 2006) and in the negotiations surrounding Shalit's release in October 2011. Al-Ja'abari played a leading role in the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip in June 2007. He was killed in an Israeli airstrike on Nov. 14, 2012.

Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi - Co-founder of the terrorist organization Hamas.
