Thousands gather in Gaza for Hamas rally

Help

Tens of thousands of people have gathered for a rally in the Gaza Strip to mark the 25th anniversary of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas.

Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal is on his first ever visit to the territory after a ceasefire that ended days of violence between Israel and Hamas last month.

He is expected to unveil a future strategy for Hamas and talk of reconciliation with its rival, Fatah.

The BBC's Yolande Knell reports from the rally at the al-Qatiba complex west of Gaza City.
