According to reports, the Hamas-controlled Ministry of Telecom & Information Technology in Gaza has issued on 24.12.2012 a stamp block under the slogan "Buraq Revolution Martyrs". The block is denominated for 3,000 Fils (print-run: 3,000). The block is sized 125.2x94.5mm (exact size can vary) and unperforated. The design is attributed to Joha Toon For Cartoon Company of Nasser, Gaza. The block is printed locally by Dar al-Arqam Library Printing Shop, Remal.

The 'Buraq Revolution' (ثورة البراق‎) was an uprising in August 1929, leading to martyrdom of some 120 Palestinians, many hundred more were injured, and the execution on 17.06.1930 of three freedom fighters by the British authorities: Mohammed Jamjoom (Muhammad Jamjoum, Mohamamed Khalil Abu Jamjum), Fouad Hijazi (Fuad Hijazi, Fuad Hassab el Hejazi), and Ata al-Zeer (Atta Ahmed el Zeer, Atta Elzir). The 'Buraq Wall' is also widely known as the 'Wailing Wall'.
