Palestine Press Agency has an article listing the size of the major militias in Gaza.

According to the article, there are more than a million weapons in Gaza, and more than a million land mines. That means there is more than one weapon for every man, woman and child in Gaza. But these are spread out among some 50 militias, causing fears of a massive bloodbath should a civil war break out.

The Hamas al Qassam Brigades has between 18,000 and 24,000 fighters. (The article lists some of the weapons Hamas has, and includes the fake tank!)

Islamic Jihad’s Al Quds Brigades has between 8,000 and 14,000 fighters.

The list does not include the number of members of the Al Aqsa Brigades, the Brigades of the Mujahideen, the Dughmosh clan or the Nasser Saladin Brigades, among many other terror groups.

There are perhaps 275,000 men in Gaza between the ages of 19 and 40. This means that one in six men of fighting age is a member of a terror group.
