During the upcoming Muslim holy month of Ramadan, an official Hamas-run television station will broadcast a series that glorifies the “heroes fighting for Jerusalem,” the Hebrew news site nrg reported on Sunday.
The show, titled “Gates of the Sky,” will begin airing on Al-Aqsa TV on May 27, the first day of Ramadan (a fasting month in which many Muslims remain at home and watch television).
The series will feature, according to a promo, violent clashes between Palestinians on one side and Israeli settlers and soldiers on the other.
“If you live in Jerusalem, you know the meaning of life,” one of the show’s actresses says in a promo quoted by nrg. “You can die at any moment.”
Another actor says, “We must oppose them [the Jews], and open the gates of hell on them.”
Ramadan, nrg noted, is often a time of increased tensions in Israel, with security forces on heightened alert for potential Palestinian terrorist attacks.
