Hamas the governing authority in the Gaza Strip has welcomed the Muslim Brotherhod election victory in Egypt, seeing it as a positive development for their cause.
According to reports from Al Arabiya, Ahram and Reuters Palestinian leaders have welcomed the election of Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood party to the presidency in Egypt.
In Gaza guns were fired into the air in celebration of this victory. Hamas which rules the narrow 21-mile long strip is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, and therefore favours it much more than the previous Mubarak regime, which along with Israel enforced the embargo of the Gaza Strip following Hamas' election victory in 2006.
The head of the Hamas government has stated that Hamas "will look to Egypt to play a big, leading role, a historic role, regarding the Palestinian cause, in helping the Palestinian nation get freedom, return home, and totally end the Gaza siege."
Morsi's victory has also been hailed as “a defeat for the program of normalization and security cooperation with the enemy,” by Mahmud Zahar a senior official of the Hamas organization.
In Israel government spokesman Mark Regev has stated the government is "not saying anything at this stage."
