Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said that the fact that missiles fired from Gaza landed "in the heart of Tel Aviv" during Operation Pillar of Defense has changed the "balance of terror" and will deter Israel from attacking Gaza.

In an interview with the London-based pan-Arabic daily Asharq Alawsat, Zahar said that Israel "will think a thousand times in the future before partaking in any aggression in the Gaza Strip."

Zahar praised Egypt for "standing behind the Palestinian people" during the eight-day conflict.

The Hamas leader claimed that the Israeli government "agreed to all of the demands of the Palestinian resistance, without any changes."
