CAIRO: Iran's attack on Israel drew applause from many Palestinians in Gaza on Sunday as rare payback for Israeli offensive on their enclave, although some said they suspected Tehran had staged assault more for show than to inflict real damage.

"For first time, we saw some rockets that didn't land in our areas. These rockets were going into occupied Palestine," said Abu Abdallah, referring to land that became Israel in 1948 rather than occupied West Bank and Gaza.

"We are hopeful that if Iran or any other country enters war solution for Gaza might be nearer than ever. Americans may have to resolve Gaza to end roots of problem," said Abu Abdallah, 32, using nickname rather than his full name.

However, support has come from Iran and its regional proxies, particularly Tehran's ally Hezbollah in Lebanon, who are allies of Gaza's Hamas Islamist rulers.  "We have been slaughtered for over six months and no one dared to do anything.

Now Iran, after its Consulate was hit, is hitting back at Israel and this brings joy into our hearts," said Abu Hamza.
