Palestinian Hamas militants march after receiving the news of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's resignation, as Hamas called for celebrations in Gaza City, Friday, Feb. 11, 2011. Egypt, along with Israel, had enforced a border blockade on Gaza after the territory was seized by Hamas in 2007. There were some Palestinian expectations that under a new Egyptian regime, the blockade would be eased while Israel feared it would mean an increase in weapon smuggling. Photo by Mohammed Asad
