Clip attributed to Hamas reportedly circulated to operatives in Jerusalem a day after knifeman attacks policemen

(SOURCE)  Palestinians have uploaded an instructional video on the internet that shows would-be attackers the most lethal ways to stab somebody.

The step-by-step video, titled “How to stab correctly,” was circulated on YouTube and its links were shared with the Facebook and Twitter groups of Palestinian organizations and activists in East Jerusalem, the Hebrew news site NRG reported Saturday.

The 72-second clip comes in the wake of a number of stabbing attacks throughout Israel and the West Bank. Most recently, two border policemen were injured when an assailant attacked them in the Old City of Jerusalem Friday morning.

One policeman, 19, was stabbed in the neck during the attack, which took place after prayers, while the second, 35, was stabbed in the hand while trying to subdue the assailant. Both men were lightly injured and were fully conscious after the incident. They were transferred to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center for treatment.

The video, set to an industrial metal track, depicts two masked men — one holding a knife and the other playing the victim — and demonstrates how to achieve maximum damage in target areas such as the neck, abdomen and heart. The video depicts a number of different techniques and situational circumstances, including how a would-be attacker could stab someone and walk away.

The clip comes to with the text “What are you waiting for / Rise up and stab.”

NRG reported that the clip was created by the Hamas terror group, which frequently creates videos that promote its ideology and attempt to intimidate the Israeli public. The terrorist group disseminated a Hebrew-language music video this summer in the lead-up to the war in Gaza that boasted of successes against IDF soldiers and attacks against the Israeli populace.

The group, which rules the Gaza Strip, also released a Hebrew-language video making light of a series of car attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians that were responsible for the deaths of four people in recent months, including a three-month-old girl.
