Real Life DetailsEdit
Hamas (Arabic: حماس, acronym of Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya, Arabic: حركة المقاومة الاسلامية, literally "Islamic Resistance Movement") is a Palestinian Islamist Sunni organisation. It was started in 1987 during the First Intifada by Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi as the Gaza branch of the Muslim Brotherhood organziation in Egypt. In the 2006 Palestinian election, Hamas got 74 of 132 seats in parliament and controls the Gaza Strip. The group wants to build a Palestinian state with laws grounded in islamic teachings. Hamas does not recognize the State of Israel.
In 2014 Hamas had taken devastating losses as the IDF conducted operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip. Lasting for seven weeks, putting the group in a significantly weakened position. Hamas and Palestinian diplomats attempted to create a ceasefire, which ended in more combat. The conflict ended when the UN intervened and forced a universally agreed upon ceasefire between the warring groups. Hamas took many magnitudes higher casualties than the IDF
