The Islamic Hamas Movement, Vice Chief, Ismail Haneya, has on Monday, in Gaza, confirmed that Turkey volunteered four million dollars to finance mass wedding in Gaza.

Haneya revealed that 2,000 brides and grooms gathered on Sunday at the main Gaza Sports Stadium of al-Yarmuk, accompanied by families and friends, for the mass wedding.
It was learnt that the Turkish government pledged to build 20 housing units comprising 340 apartments during the coming summer.
According to him, this was an attempt to rebuild homes that were demolished during the war against the Israeli military.
The wedding party coincided with the five-year commemoration of the Israeli naval attack on the Gaza-bound aid Flotilla, when nine Turkish activists were killed.
