ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Brides and grooms held Palestinian flags in front of their families and politicians at a mass wedding as 100 couples tied the knot on Friday (September 8). Hamas - which governs the Gaza strip and is on the EU terrorism blacklist - holds mass weddings on a regular basis in the Palestinian territory, paying for the entertainment and giving gifts to those getting married. One of its senior officials, Khalil al-Hayya, addressed attendees, and called on them to renew their efforts to end what he described as a 'Zionist occupation'.
