After 10 years the 1972 Cubs camp is back in Ain al-Hilweh, enabling Palestinian youngsters to train to become future fighters against Israeli occupation, as envisioned by Fatah Movement head Yasser Arafat in the 1970s.Arafat ordered the creation of the Cubs to educate and train children, men and women to fight the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. The new training camp was established in the Taamir neighborhood of Ain al-Hilweh. By November 2014, the Cubs camp resumed its work, training the next generation of Palestinian freedom fighters.As a Cub graduate himself, Sunbul said top Palestinian officials also spent their youth training at the camp.Sunbul, who firmly calls on the youth to stand in line silently before giving orders to commence self-defense training, believes that the Cubs camp helps to keep the memory of Palestine alive among children.
