Palestine Press Agency has an article listing out the size of the major militias in Gaza.
According to the article, there are over a million weapons in Gaza and over a million land mines. That means 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 18-24 thousand fighters. (The article lists some of the weapons Hamas has and includes the fake tank!)
Islamic Jihad's Al Quds Brigades has between 8-14 thousand fighters.
The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades (PFLP) has 3,000 fighters.
The National Resistance Brigades (DFLP) also has 3,000 fighters.
They do not list the numbers of members of the Al Aqsa Brigades, the Brigades of the Mujahideen, the Dughmosh clan, or the Nasser Saladin Brigades, among many others.
There are perhaps 275,000 men in Gaza between the ages of 19-40. This means that one in six men of fighting age is a member of a terror group.
