UNPACKED – Understanding Hamas
This week, we’re tackling the tough subject of Hamas and Gaza.
And it’s not an easy one to watch.
Hamas was the terror group behind a wave of suicide bombings and other activities in the 1990s and 2000s.
More recently, the group has launched THOUSANDS of rockets at Israel, dug attack tunnels and served as the inspiration for countless lone-wolf attacks upon Israeli soldiers and civilians.

How did the group get started?
Why did Israel originally support it?
Who are its political rivals?
And how did this terrorist organization end up ruling the whole of the Gaza strip?
Up your understanding of one of the biggest challenges to peace today.
