The image is a picture uploaded in the anashid (a capella songs) section of the Muslim Brotherhood’s website. The name of the relevant album is “hajamu, hajamu al-Muslimin” (“attack, attack [O] Muslims”), and the combination of the different motifs in the image evokes notions of militant activism and a call to join the jihadi struggle.  The fighters are wearing the green headbands commonly worn by members of Hamas, or its affiliate, ‘Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades.  The group has frequently shot rockets into Israel.
