Gazans celebrate after ‘victory’ over Israel

Reuters, GAZA

Israel’s military says it dealt devastating blows to Hamas’ armed wing and its rocket arsenal, including longer-range missiles it says were supplied by Iran, in an assault that began with the assassination of the group’s acting military commander.

Israel says its Iron Dome anti-missile system proved effective in intercepting militant rockets heading for towns and cities, limiting the Israeli death toll to five. The ceasefire headed off a possible Israeli ground assault that would undoubtedly have proved costly for both sides.
