Although it's a min or technical point, judging by the size and power of that explosion I would say that it was not a hand grenade. Probably some kind of self-fashioned explosive device.
It detonated way to quickly for a grenade, and hand grenades are purposely desigend to have reduced smoke and flash effects. Not to mention that the kill radius on most hand grenades is about 10-15 meters....

Were they given these grenades in hopes that the teens would be shot dead and then used as propaganda?

The Coalition probably wiped out their families with Airstrikes, or one of their little massacres of vengeance (Haditha)... Probably not. But If my country was bombed to pieces, invaded, and occupied, I would probably be throwing Grenades or whatever I could find at the invaders too. Immortal Technique put it best;
"They say the rebels in Iraq still fight for Saddam
but that's Bull#, I'll show you why it's totally wrong
'cause If another country invaded the hood tonight,
it'd be warfare, through Harlem, and Washington hights.
I wouldn't be fighting for Bush, or white America's dream,
I'd be fighting for my peoples survival and self esteem.
I wouldn't be fighting for racist churches in the south my ******,
I'd be fighting to keep the occupation out my ******." - Immortal Technique
