Information

Ahmed al-Jabari (born in 1960) is the second-in-command of the military wing of Hamas in Gaza Strip. He has been credited as the leader in the takeover of the territory by Hamas and the firing of Qassam rockets into Israel. Jabari is also a high-ranking official within Hamas' political leadership and is the founder of the Nur Association which aims to help Palestinian prisoners and the families of slain Palestinian militants.[


Jabari hails from a locally respected Palestinian activist family based in the Shuja'iyya district of Gaza City. He graduated from Gaza's Islamic University with a degree in history. In 1982, Jabari was arrested and imprisoned by Israeli authorities while he was a member of the secular Palestinian militant organization Fatah. While serving 13 years in prison, he left Fatah and joined Hamas after meeting with some of the latter's founders who were also incarcerated at the time, namely Abd al-Aziz Rantissi, Nizar Rayyan and Salah Shehadeh. He later married Shehadeh's daughter.
