TEHRAN (FNA)- Palestinian Islamic resistance movement, Hamas, announced it has allocated $52 million for relief payments to cover up the damages sustained by Gazans in the war with Israel.



According to Hamas officials, the financial relief aid includes $5,200 for a destroyed house.

An amount of $1,300 is paid for the loss of life of each family member, $650 for an injury and $2,600 for a damaged house, a Hamas spokesman said.

Independent estimates show that reconstructing 4,000 destroyed houses and 20,000 damaged ones needs about $2 billion.
