How was Hamas, a military organization that attacked Israel, established?

The sudden attack on Israel by the Palestinian militant organization Hamas from the Gaza Strip is being considered a turning point in the decades-long conflict.

In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli forces and Hamas have come face-to-face several times, and several weeks of clashes have also taken place. However, the recent action of Hamas is being described as unusual in many respects.

After this operation, Hamas is once again the center of attention in world news and analysis. To understand the establishment of Hamas and its control in Gaza, it is important to understand the historical background of the Gaza Strip.

The formation of the Gaza Strip and Hamas

The history of the formation of Hamas is mainly related to the Gaza Strip. The 40 km long and 10 km wide area of Gaza between Israel and Egypt is also called the Gaza Strip or ‘Gaza Strip’.

Before the 1948 war and the establishment of Israel in the surrounding areas, the area was part of the British ‘Mandate of Palestine’.

It should be noted that the territory of Palestine was included in the Ottoman Empire until the First World War. After the First World War, in 1922, the League of Nations, an international organization established to resolve international disputes at that time, handed over Palestine to the British administration, which is called the ‘Palestine Mandate’. Gaza was also involved.

Later in 1947, the United Nations General Assembly approved a plan to divide the Palestinian territories into a separate state of Israel for Arabs and Jews before the end of this mandate. According to this plan, Gaza and its adjoining areas were given to the Arabs.

The British Mandate ended on May 15, 1948, and the war that resulted in the creation of Israel began on the same day.

At the beginning of this war, the forces of neighboring Arab country Egypt had entered Gaza.

However, in the severe war of 1948, after many areas were lost to the hands of the Arabs, its boundaries were reduced to a strip known as the Gaza Strip.

In the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Israel also acquired the territories of Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem. The Palestinians consider these three areas to be part of their proposed separate state in the future.

During the war for the establishment of Israel, a large number of Palestinians sought refuge in Gaza. The population of these refugee families has grown to an estimated 1.7 million, while the total population of Gaza is around 2.1 million.

In 1987, the first resistance movement known as the ‘Intifada’ arose in Gaza. In the same year, Hamas was established and later spread to the areas of Palestine that are under the control of Israel.

Hamas, or the Islamic Resistance Movement, is supported by the Shia-majority country of Iran, while it is ideologically a follower of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in Egypt in the 1920s.

Hamas and Fatah

In the 1990s, the Oslo Peace Accords created the Palestinian Authority, which was given limited powers over Gaza and the West Bank.

Hamas took control of Gaza in 2007 after a brief civil war with the Fatah movement led by President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) administration is based in the West Bank.

Hamas took control of Gaza after the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections. Since then, elections have not been held here again.

At the time, Hamas accused Mahmoud Abbas of plotting against him, while Mahmoud Abbas called Hamas’ control of Gaza a coup.

Hamas does not recognize the state of Israel and is also opposed to the Oslo Accords signed between the PLO and Israel in the 1990s.

Conflicts with Israel

It has clashed with Israel several times since control of Gaza went to Hamas.

Most of them started with Hamas firing rockets at Israel from Gaza, which is followed by Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.

The military wing of Hamas is called the ‘Al-Shaheed Izz al-Din al-Qassam’ Brigade, which sends fighters and suicide bombers into Israel.

Hamas calls its military operations against Israel resistance to the Israeli occupation.

‘The fight between Hamas and Israel does not seem to end soon’

The charter that Hamas drew up in 1988 for its establishment declared the destruction of Israel.

Hamas is leading the fight to establish a Palestinian state by reclaiming the territories captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War.

However, there has been a long-term ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, which is called ‘Hadanah’ in Arabic.

Hamas has been declared a terrorist organization by Israel, the United States, the European Union, Canada, Egypt, and Japan.

Allies of Hamas

Along with operations in the Palestinian territories, Hamas is also part of a coalition opposing US policy and Israel in the Middle East, which includes Iran, Syria, and Lebanon’s Shiite militant group, Hezbollah.

Although Gaza is a stronghold of Hamas, it also receives support from other Palestinian territories.

Its leaders have spread to other countries in the Middle East, including Qatar.

The information obtained from the news organization “Reuters” has been included in this article.
