Thousands gathered in Rafah on Thursday to commemorate those who lost their lives during Israel’s 2014 Operation Protective Edge against Gaza. The festival, attended by both Gaza residents and military and political leaders, was organized by the far-right Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) movement, considered by some countries to be a terrorist organization. The program included a presentation of the Al-Quds Brigades’ new weapons systems and combat tactics.
