Hamas: Election outcome reflects Israel defeat in Gaza

Jan. 23, 2013 5:19 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 24, 2013 3:18 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The impact of the Palestinian victory over Israel in the latest assault on Gaza was evident in the outcome of Israel's election Tuesday, according to Hamas.

Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said Wednesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suffered losses because he failed to face the resistance in the mid-November deadly assault.

Abu Zuhri dismissed the election as a competition between parties committed to ignoring Palestinian rights. He said all the leading parties would continue aggression against the Palestinian people.

He added that the Palestinian people would achieve victory through national unity and strengthening the resistance.

Israel launched a week-long assault on Gaza on Nov. 14, assassinating a senior Hamas commander in the first day and about 170 Palestinians by the end of the campaign.

Palestinian armed groups responded by firing rockets deeper than ever before into Israel and near Jerusalem. The violence led to an Egyptian-negotiated ceasefire that was seen locally as a victory for Hamas. The terms required Israel to reduce restrictions on Palestinian fishing and agriculture near the Gaza-Israel border.
