Hamas handles boys for sabotaging the security fence as part of the „return marches:“ The case of Yasser Abu al-Naja – The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center | The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center
During the “return march” on June 29, 2018, a group of boys tried to sabotage the barbed wire fence east of Khan Younes, near the security fence, probably in preparation for an attempt to break into Israeli territory. One of the group members, Yasser Abu al-Naja, a boy aged 13 (or 14), was killed during the attempt to sabotage the barbed wire fence. The dead boy is the son of Amjad Abu al-Naja, senior operative in Hamas’s military wing in Khan Younes, and a member of a clan which produced Hamas and Fatah terrorist operatives. Hamas’s senior officials, including Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’s leader in the Gaza Strip, attended Yasser Abu al-Naja’s funeral.
