Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, on Wednesday organized a military parade in Gaza City on the occasion of the Movement’s 30th founding anniversary.

Hundreds of masked armed fighters in army uniform toured the main streets of Gaza City, carrying different weapons, including homemade sniper rifles and rockets.

December 14 of each year marks the anniversary of Hamas’s inception in 1987. Its armed wing, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, was created later in 1991.
