Hamas brutally assaults Shi’ite worshippers in Gaza

The assault was part of a broader crackdown on Shi’ite organizations, including charities, that has been sparked in part by Hamas’ fear of growing Iranian influence in Gaza.

The worshippers had gathered in a house in the Sheikh Zayyad neighborhood, between Beit Lahia and Jabalya, to mark Arbaeen, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein, founder of Shia Islam, who was killed in 680 C.E.

Hamas militants arrested 14 of the men and beat up the rest. They continued beating the worshippers even after taking some to a hospital and others to a Hamas detention facility.
