Iran Announces Victory

The Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Sunday that Hamas was victorious over Israel in Gaza. He said that Israel's announcement of a unilateral cease fire shows "the failure of the Zionist government to reach a victory over a courageous rebellion."

Mottaki also called on Israel to immediately withdraw from Gaza. Although Israel declared a cease fire Saturday night, IDF troops remain in Gaza. Sunday morning terrorists fired on troops and also fired nine rockets and mortar shells at Israel.
