Each summer, the various organizations in Gaza vie to attract the most applicants for their summer programs. The three most successful groups are Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
Hamas, the Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist organization that’s designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the US, hosts annual youth camps that focus on military-style training. These camps are typically held from July 25 to August 1 near the Gaza Strip and have anywhere between 15,000 to 25,000 students.
