Hamas stages rally to mark anniversary

The Islamic militant group Hamas displayed rockets and other heavy weapons Sunday during a rally marking the 27th anniversary of its founding. It also launched a drone that prompted Israel to scramble fighter jets in a precautionary measure, the Israeli military said. Several thousand people attended the show of force in Gaza City, a lower turnout than in previous Hamas anniversary rallies. The group’s leaders watched from a stage, including former Gaza PM Ismail Haniyeh, who brandished a rifle and flashed a V-for-victory sign.
