Hamas celebrated the mass carnage and terrorism it has conducted against Israeli citizens since its inception, vowing to carry on its war against the Jewish State until it is eliminated.
Thousands of Hamas members and supporters participated on Friday in a rally organized by the Palestinian terror organization in Gaza to commemorate the 29th anniversary of its establishment, the first of a series of events and rallies to celebrate the occasion.
Hamas was founded in 1987, soon after the First Intifada broke out, as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
Hamas leader and member of Hamas’ political bureau Khalil al-Hayya said that Hamas “remains strong and united and holds an unwavering commitment to resistance as the main option to confront the Israeli occupation and liberate Palestine.”
He stressed Hamas’ rejection of all forms of normalization with the Israeli “occupation.”
“Hamas was and will always remain honest to its principles and people,” he underlined.
The terrorist leader called for abolishing the Oslo Peace Accords with Israel, which he said brought “only disagreement and harm to Palestinians.”
“We call on all Arabs and Muslims to provide a dignified shelter to Palestinian refugees until they return to their land,” he added.
Last year, for its 28th anniversary, Hamas published a special file which included a recounting of its “successes” against Israel: the firing of 16,377 rockets at Israel, 86 suicide bombings that murdered hundreds, 36 stabbing attacks, over 500 infiltration attacks, over 250 sniper attacks, over 80 attacks on Israeli armored targets and 26 abductions of live or dead Israelis since its inception in 1987.
The numbers have since grown.
