Gaza, December 08:

Palestinian crowds, mainly supporters of Islamic Hamas movement, gathered in the Gaza City on Saturday to celebrate the movement''s 25th anniversary.

Despite a shower of rain in the morning, Palestinian men, women and children flocked in their dozens to al-Katiba square and gathered before a huge stage, wearing headbands and waving green flags in support of Hamas.

Khaled Meshaal, Hamas'' exiled leader, arrived in Gaza on Friday from Egypt, and would attend the rally and deliver a speech on Saturday. Egypt negotiated with Israel for Meshaal''s trip, obtaining assurances that Meshaal will not be hit in his first- ever visit to Gaza.

Hamas, an extension of Muslim Brotherhood, has been an adversary of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Islamic and Arab delegations are also marking the anniversary of the Islamic movement which has been controlling Gaza since 2007.

Last month, Egypt brokered a ceasefire that ended eight days of fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. More than 160 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed during the conflict. (Xinhua-ANI)
