Hamas

Hamas is a terrorist organization that primarily targets Israeli civilians. Their goal is to destroy Israel and replace Jewish sovereignty over any part of the land with radical Islamist rule. After Israel unilaterally withdrew from the Gaza strip, Hamas won control of the territory. Since 2006, Hamas has consistently used Gaza as a launch pad for rocket and mortar attacks against Israel. In 2014, Israel discovered Hamas was digging tunnels beneath the Gazan border. Hamas uses the Palestinian people living in Gaza as human shields, diverting money and resources meant for civilians in order to support terror. While Hamas prepares for the next war by stockpiling thousands of rockets and digging new tunnels in Gaza, the organization is also working to gain control of the West Bank.
