Hamas plans 25th anniversary celebrations

Nov. 29, 2012 4:19 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 29, 2012 9:09 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas will launch its 25th anniversary celebrations on Dec. 8, spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said Thursday.

"The celebration this year will be different than any time before," Barhoum said at a news conference outside the home of the late Hamas founder and spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.

Barhoum said the anniversary festival would celebrate what is being hailed locally as a victory of the resistance against Israel in the recent eight-day war.

The war, which ended with a ceasefire on Nov. 21, raised Hamas' credibility and support locally and regionally.

Barhoum said Hamas had been committed to national rights, resistance, jihad, steadfastness and sacrifice for 25 years.

He urged Arab and Islamic nations to fulfil their duties "in liberating Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
