The Hamas resistance movement celebrated the 30th anniversary of its founding with a massive rally and celebrations in Gaza City, Thursday. Thousands of Palestinians gathered in Gaza City’s al-Katiba Square, waving green Hamas flags and displaying green scarves. In a speech delivered to rally participants, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh condemned last week’s decision by US President Donald Trump... Еще to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Hamas’ first objective would be «to force the American administration to reverse its unjust decision,» Haniyeh stated, adding that Hamas would «continue to enhance strong alliances in the region to confront the American- Zionist project on Palestinian soil.» Born out of the first Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, in December 1987, Hamas was created in response to Israel's occupation of Palestine. Under Haniyeh's new leadership, Hamas has given political control of Gaza back to the Palestinian Authority (PA), a decision incited by pressure from Egypt and the PA, which stemmed a Hamas-Fatah reconciliation deal on October 12.
