Thousands attend festival organised by Hamas in Gaza

Thousands of Palestinian citizens will attend a festival organised by the Hamas government in Gaza Sunday under the title “loyalty and steadfastness on the path of martyrs”.


Hamas is scheduled to hold a mass rally Sunday noon in commemoration of the assassination of the movement’s founder Ahmad Yassin, and its leaders Abdel-Aziz Al-Rantisi and Ibrahim Al-Makadima.

Leaders of Hamas and other Palestinian factions, including the Islamic Jihad, will attend the event.

Hundreds of thousands are expected to attend the rally.
