A Hamas spokesman praised Tuesday's rocket attack on an Israeli army base, calling it a "victory from God." "We consider this a victory from God for the resistance," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said on Hamas radio. "We consider the resistance as the legitimate right of the Palestinians to defend themselves and restore their rights." The rocket strike, which wounded dozens of soldiers, was carried out by two smaller militant groups in Gaza, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees. Although Hamas was not directly involved, Israel has said it holds the group responsible for attacks out of Gaza because it rules the area.
