GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The ceremony in Gaza City to celebrate the release of hundreds of prisoners on Tuesday will include “a huge surprise,” sources close to Hamas told Ma’an.

Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and released prisoner Yahwa Sinwar are scheduled to speak at the celebrations but officials suggested a third speaker would be a surprise addition to the agenda.

A huge stage has been built in Gaza City, where 300 released prisoners will sit. The freed detainees will break the walls of a symbolic jail built on the platform.

Hamas militants are patrolling the streets of the city celebrating the triumphant release, negotiated with Israel by Hamas to secure the freedom of captured soldier Gilad Shalit.
