Hamas supporters take part in a rally celebrating the 25th anniversary of the founding of Hamas Islamist mouvement on December 13, 2012 in the northern West Bank city of Nablus. Thousands of Palestinians attended the rare Hamas rally in Nablus, celebrating the group’s “victory” over Israel in Gaza. The rally is the first time that the West Bank’s ruling Palestinian Authority — which is dominated by the Fatah faction, Hamas’s bitter rival — have allowed such a gathering since 2007.
