Qatar-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal gave a speech during a press conference in Doha on Thursday and said that Israel's siege on Gaza had failed. "This war was forced upon us," he said  at the conference which centered on the results of the seven-week operation in Gaza.

Mashaal said "reconstructing Gaza is the duty of the national consensus government and of the free world."



"The resistance triumphed in Gaza," he said, vowing to start rebuilding the coastal territory, compensate the many residents who lost their properties, and see that the wounded get proper treatment.

"Every Palestinian in Gaza and every Palestinian in the world are partners in this victory," he stated.
