Hamas and the Rocket Threat to Israel

Hamas and the Rocket Threat to Israel

Since October 7, when the barbaric terrorist organization Hamas brutally attacked innocent Israeli civilians, Israel has been at war. Here’s a quick rundown about Hamas’ founding and objectives:

Hamas is the acronym of al-Harakat al-Muqawwama al-Islamiyya—the name of the Islamic Resistance Movement, a Palestinian Sunni-Islamist terror organization that is legally banned by the United States, Canada, the EU, and Israel.

The second wealthiest terrorist organization in the world and the de facto ruler of the Gaza Strip, Hamas poses a direct and immediate threat to the safety and security of Israeli civilians. Founded in 1987 as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood by Palestinian cleric Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, its covenant states that “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

In the wake of the October 7 massacre, Israel has stopped at nothing to protect her innocent from Hamas barbarians.
