Hamas's Central Committee for Summer Camps (CCSC) announced on July 1 the launching of approximately 800 summer camps in the Gaza Strip, where more than 150,000 children will spend their summer vacation, Israeli media reported.
The camps, titled 'Steadfastness Despite the Closure,' aims to strengthen the ongoing steadfastness of the Gaza Strip's people, in the face of the strangling Zionist closure, the announcement read.
The camps will provide recreational activities and Quran reciting lessons, and all participants will wear special uniforms, the committee added.
Alongside Hamas's camps, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is operating summer camps for more than 200,000 children who are registered in UNRWA's schools, as well as for others wishing to attend.
