A group known as Gaza’s Liberators is openly opposing Hamas’s control over the Gaza Strip, citing deteriorating living conditions and Hamas’s refusal to relinquish power amid the conflict with Israel.

The group, critical of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, is distributing anti-Hamas materials in displaced persons’ encampments, particularly in Rafah. The origins of the group remain unclear, with speculation suggesting ties to Fatah faction members or external forces.

Protests against Hamas are intensifying, with demonstrators demanding the release of Israeli hostages and an end to the war. The group has published videos of protests, including statements condemning Hamas leaders residing outside Gaza. In a recent statement, Gaza’s Liberators called for an end to the war, urging Hamas leaders to acknowledge the plight of the defenseless and oppressed residents without the resources to withstand attacks.

IDF Arabic Spokesperson Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee shared clips and quotes from the protests, emphasizing Gazans’ frustration with Hamas leadership, attributing the tragedy in Gaza to Sinwar and his associates.
