Hamas is a Palestinian militant group and political organization. Characterized as a terrorist organization by many Western governments, Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip after losing an election to Fatah in 2006. After Hamas took Gaza, Israel set up a blockade and withdrew all settlements. To this day, Hamas remains in control of the Gaza Strip and fights the Israeli Defense Force in periodic skirmishes.
