Home to Hamas

The Palestinian Islamist political organization Hamas, formed in 1987 as a militant “resistance” group against Israel, rejects the country’s existence and seeks its destruction. Hamas has governed Gaza since 2007, yet the region is under Israeli blockade, which stifles economic life and, subsequently, produces Palestinian civilian deaths.
