Gaza Marks Hamas' 25th Anniversary

Tens of thousands turned out in the streets of Gaza for Hamas' 25th anniversary celebrations.
Khaled Mashaal, the leader of the organization, has arrived in Gaza on what is believed to be his first-ever visit to the strip, RT reported.
"I consider this moment my third birth, and I pray to God that my fourth birth will be the moment when all of Palestine is liberated," Mashaal said about his visit, referencing his surviving an assassination attempt in Jordan in 1997.
Mashaal, who was born in the West Bank, fled the Palestinian territory with his family after the 1967 Six Day War. He currently lives in Qatar and Egypt.
