GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — The Islamic Bloc, Hamas’ student wing, held a major exhibition in the Gaza Strip from Nov. 14 to Nov. 22. The event was held in a school complex in the west of the city in commemoration of the ninth anniversary of the assassination of Ahmed al-Jabaari, the former commander of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing.

Abdullah al-Hadidi, the deputy head of the preparatory committee for the exhibition, told Al-Monitor, “The exhibition is the first of its kind organized by the Islamic Bloc in cooperation with al-Qassam Brigades, in a bid to attract school students and introduce them to Hamas’ military industries … and instill the spirit of resistance in them.”
