Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh claimed Tuesday that Palestinians would be the biggest winners of the so-called Arab Spring revolutions that saw the overthrow of four separate regimes in the Middle East and a notable rise in the power of Islamist groups.

Speaking with Turkish journalists during his trip to Turkey, the Hamas leader stressed that the recent victory of Islamist parties in newly democratic elections in countries such as Egypt and Tunisia foreshadowed a "promising future" for the Palestinian people.

"I can confirm that the Palestinian issue is the biggest winner from the Arab Spring," Haniyeh said, according to Hamas affiliate news outlet Al Resalah.
