Hamas hails triumph over Israel

After an open-ended truce goes into effect at 7 p.m., Hamas tweets a graphic boasting of its triumph over Israel.

In the graphic, captioned “And so Gaza has triumphed,” three Palestinian gunfighters — one wearing a green Hamas headband flanked by two others, presumably belonging to other armed Gaza factions — can be seen pointing their weapons at a Israeli soldier raising his hands in the air and holding a white flag.

The soldier is shirtless, his military-issue shirt slung over his shoulder. A large black Star of David is tattooed on his bare back.

Behind the soldier, tanks — presumably Israeli ones — are seen retreating, presumably from the Gaza Strip, amid a cloud of fire and smoke.
