Hamas 25th Anniversary

December 8, 2012 by  

Hamas 25th Anniversary, Tens of thousands of Hamas supporters rallied in Gaza City on Saturday to mark the 25th anniversary of the movement’s establishment, with the presence of Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal.Despite the rain in the morning, Palestinians waving green and Palestinian flags and wearing headbands flocked in their dozens to al-Katiba square in western Gaza City, where the rally was held.

The crowds gathered before a huge stage, which showcased a 9-meter long mock-up rocket that Hamas said it manufactured and used in its last month fighting with Israel.

Meshaal, the movement’s exiled leader, attended the rally and delivered a speech.

He crossed into Gaza on Friday from Egypt, which arranged his visit with Israel and got assurances that he will not be hit by Israel in his first-ever visit to Gaza.

Hamas leaders including Meshaal’s deputy Musa Abu Marzooq and members of the movement’s politburo were at the rally. Representatives and leaders of other factions, including Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, also attended.
