TEHRAN, November 24 (RIA Novosti) – Iran's President Mahmud Ahmadinejad phoned Gaza's Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh on Saturday to congratulate him on a “great victory” over Israel.
"Zionists have reached the dead point and have no other alternative but officially recognizing and bowing to the absolute right of the Palestinian nation," the Fars agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
Ahmadinejad expressed sympathy with the families of the victims and wished “health and recovery” for all those injured in the conflict.
"We hope that in light of endeavors and efforts of all the faithful and the reformers the noble Qods [Jerusalem] will be liberated and justice would govern over whole the universe,” the Iranian leader said.
Haniyeh thanked Iran for support “against brutal attacks of the Israeli regime.”
Earlier this week, Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal said Iran had supplied arms to the Palestinians.
The phone conversation came following an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire which was agreed by Israel and the Hamas Islamist group on Wednesday.
Around 160 Palestinians have been killed in Israel's eight-day air and naval attack on Gaza, local officials say. Gaza’s health ministry says many children are among the Palestinian dead.
Six Israelis died in the conflict, officials said.

For months Hamas is launching rockets against Israel. over 750 Rockets have been fired against Israel before Israel started to think about defending itself.
Israel didn't attack anyone, after a nation has been under attack by more then 750 rockets, it's time for defense. The attacker is the one who ordered Hamas to launch those 750 missiles against Israel. Maybe the president of Iran goes around and ask:"Who attacked Israel and forced them to defend themselves"
Be aware Mr. Achmed the butcher, Russia won't be so nice as Israel to wait for 750 Missiles. Even after 1 missile Russia will make your country as flat as a virus and wipe you of the face of the earth.
The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
