apart from the obviously important human aspects of this deal,there are possibly very important political aspects and consequences to this deal.Now Egypt has more clout and influence on Hamas which may lead to a softening of Hamas political stance especially if their political headquarters move from Syria to Egypt.Also this could eventually lead to a removal of Israels blockade on Gaza especially if a way can be found to limit arm smuggling into Gaza.This in turn could ease the strain on the relation between Israel and Turkey.On the other hand if Syria and especially Iran retain their influence on Hamas then none of the above favourable consequences would follow and alternatively a situation could develop where more terrorism violence and kidnapping could occur.Much of the consequences depend on the role of Egypt and the consequences of the Syrian uprising.
