Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal announced in a press conference Wednesday evening that Israel "has failed in all its goals" in Operation Defensive Pillar, following the cease fire announcement.

"After eight days, God stayed their hand from the people of Gaza, and they were compelled to submit to the conditions of the resistance," Mashaal said. "Israel has failed in all its goals," he told reporters in a Cairo hotel.

Mashaal also thanked ceasefire mediator Egypt, as well as Iran, which he said "had a role in arming" Hamas during the conflict.

Arabs in Gaza took to the streets to celebrate the start of the truce deal, firing into the air and chanting victory slogans, AFP reported.

The celebrations began shortly after the 9:00 p.m. deadline for the ceasefire to begin, agreed in a deal between Israel and Hamas that was announced in Egypt.

Heavy celebratory gunfire could be heard throughout Gaza, and residents also released fireworks into the night sky, where Israeli drones could still be buzzing heard overhead.

"The resistance has triumphed," some shouted, alongside chants of "God is greatest."



Billboards in Gaza Thank Iran for Help During IDF Op

Large billboards have been put up across Gaza thanking Iran for its help during operation "Pillar of Defense."

The billboards reflect the long held sentiments that Iran was smuggling weapons into Gaza and aiding Hamas in their effort to weaken Israel. The missiles that were fired from Gaza and reached as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem were made in Iran.
