Daesh threatens to overthrow Hamas in Gaza


Daesh release video threatening to overthrow Hamas and seize control of Gaza Strip

GAZA, Palestine – A video released late Tuesday by Daesh-affiliated websites “threatened to overthrow Hamas” in the Gaza Strip because the group was not implementing Islamic law.

Daesh also accused the Palestinian resistance group of repressing Gazans with its security forces.

The group, which threatened to attack Hamas members, also promised to terminate the “Jewish state (Israel), the Palestinian group Fatah as well as all secularists.”

The Gaza Strip has recently witnessed rising tensions between Hamas and other pro-Daesh groups, with Hamas detaining a number of these groups’ members.

Despite establishing a Palestinian unity government in June 2014, Hamas is still in control of the Gaza Strip due to unsolved disputes with Fatah.
