Hamas to hold new festival in Qalqiliya

Dec. 15, 2012 2:08 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 16, 2012 10:20 P.M.)
QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Hamas on Saturday announced the third day of festivals in the West Bank commemorating the party's 25th anniversary.

The movement will hold a rally in northern West Bank city Qalqiliya, starting from the Ali Bin Abi Taleb mosque and ending in the Abu Ali Iyad square.

Hamas said the festival will be addressed by party officials and families of Palestinians imprisoned in Israel and killed by Israeli forces.

Huge rallies were held after noon prayers on Friday in Hebron, Ramallah and Tulkarem.

The celebrations had started on Thursday in Nablus, where thousands turned out for the first Hamas rally in the West Bank since 2007.
