Palestinians celebrated Wednesday's ceasefire as a victory.
DUBAI (Reuters) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the head of the Hamas government in Gaza on Saturday that eight days of cross-border fighting showed that Israel had no choice but to "bow" to Palestinian rights, according to Iran's IRNA news agency.

Hamas has basked in what it called a victory against Israel after an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Thursday ended the conflict in which around 170 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed.

IRNA said Ahmadinejad, in the rare telephone call with Ismail Haniyeh, praised the Palestinian "resistance and perseverance".

"Zionists have reached the dead point and have no other alternative but officially recognizing and bowing to the absolute right of the Palestinian nation," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

Israel's arch-foe Iran, which has an alliance with Hamas, had referred to Israeli strikes as "organized terrorism". The exiled leader of Hamas, Khalid Mashaal, on Wednesday thanked Iran for what he described as arms and funding.
