Hamas, a Palestinian Sunni militant organization in control of the Gaza Strip, has been locked in a protracted on-and-off conflict with Israel for decades. Israel has been a target of constant rocket attacks from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and has responded in kind, bombarding large portions of the region.
