Hamas is a Palestinian Islamic organization that was established in 1987. Considered a terrorist group, the organization assumed power in the Gaza strip in 2006 and has been in power since. The group has a military wing, known as the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades.
The group refuses to acknowledge Israel. Its charter was established on the grounds that Hamas should liberate Palestine from modern-day Israel in order to establish an Islamic state.
Hamas has engaged in a number of military confrontations with Israel. Its military wing has employed tactics such as suicide bombings, rocket attacks, kidnapping attempts, and tunnel infiltrations against Israeli soldiers and civilians.
On Tuesday morning, Israel and Hamas denied a Channel 12 report that a Gaza ceasefire understanding had been reached that would ensure six months of calm.
‘We feel like we’re dealing with two little kids in a kindergarten,’ say the Egyptians.
Defiant Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders said that the Palestinian struggle against Israel will continue until the “liberation of all Palestine.”
Prime Minister's son declares, the “Land for Peace” formula leads in reality to “Land for War”.
