That’s their spin:
BEIRUT, Aug 16 (Reuters) – Hizbollah, whose own guerrilla attacks helped end Israel’s 22-year occupation of south Lebanon, hailed Israel’s evacuation of Jewish settlements in Gaza on Tuesday as another victory for armed resistance.
“This is a right the Palestinians took by force of arms. We consider Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza a withdrawal under the blows of resistance, not giving the Palestinians a piece of land,” Hizbollah’s deputy chief Naim Kassem said.
“The Israeli withdrawal from Gaza is a defeat for Israel and a victory for the Palestinians,” he told Reuters.
