Hamas declares victory, celebrations across Palestine

Aug. 26, 2014 8:30 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2014 5:39 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Immediately after the Gaza ceasefire went into effect Tuesday evening, Hamas urged Gazans to take to the streets and "celebrate victory and the fulfillment of the Palestinian people's demands."

In a news conference at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that "Israeli settlers who live around Gaza can go back to their homes after the ceasefire agreement went into effect."

He announced victory and congratulated the Palestinian people and the Arab nation for the victory which he said the Palestinian resistance achieved.

"The Hamas movement won't abandon the Palestinian people after the battle came to an end."

Gunmen fired gunshots into the air celebrating victory, and Palestinians took to the streets across the West Bank.
