Hamas's Haniyeh awards prisoners' families $2,000

Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh decided to give $2,000 to the families of those prisoners who released on Tuesday as part of a prisoner swap in exchange for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit,  Hamas-affiliate Al Resalah reported.
Haniyeh also expressed support for those prisoners who were unable to return to their homes in the West Bank and were instead relocated in Gaza.
"You are immigrants, and we are your support," Haniyeh said according to Al Resalah, adding that their relocation was not a dismissal because Gaza is a part of Palestine.
