Video: Palestinian-Syrian girls invite strangers to 'hug a terrorist'

Kids raise awareness about the rising civilian death toll in Palestine.

In this short video, Palestinian-Syrian girls in Toronto, Canada invited strangers to "hug a terrorist". Created by the social media advocacy group Like for Syria, the video shows two young girls hugging pedestrians to raise awareness about the rising death toll in Gaza. 

Faris Al Shawaf, a member of Like for Syria, told the The Stream, "The intent of the video is to call into question the claim of 'we are killing terrorists', which is used by many governments including Israel, Syria and America to justify murder of civilians, including families and children."
