Hamas is a Palestinian group based in the Gaza Strip. It has a political wing and an armed wing. Both are actively struggling for Palestinian independence.

Founded in 1987, Hamas has been a counter group to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and has been internationally shunned as a terrorist organization because its military wing periodically attacks Israel and its citizens.
