Hamas celebrates its 32nd anniversary of terrorism throughout Gaza
Thousands of terror-fans gathered in Gaza City to celebrate the 32nd anniversary of the Islamic terror group that rules Gaza.
Hamas was founded in 1987, soon after the First Intifada broke out, as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
Dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the genocide of the Jewish people, Hamas was designated a terror group by Israel, the United States, the European Union, and many other world powers.
Hamas became involved in political struggles in Gaza, winning a victory against rival faction Fatah in 2006. Clashes broke out between Hamas and Fatah and in 2007 Hamas ousted Fatah from Gaza, taking control of Strip.
Israel and Egypt then imposed a blockade of Gaza, on the grounds that Fatah forces were no longer providing security there.
The IDF holds Hamas accountable for everything that happens in Gaza, including rockets fired by other terror groups towards Israel.
