Charges of corruption against Hamas leader Haniyeh

Fatah media is reporting about a YouTube video has surfaced accusing Hamas president Ismail Haniyeh and his family of hiding a vast fortune.  It starts off showing Haniyeh giving a speech in his mosque saying that the people of Gaza are suffering in the heat without air conditioning, and then shows that this mosque has ten AC units and a generator.

It then shows expensive cars and apartments allegedly owned by Haniyeh's family, and further alleges that Haniyeh has been taking public Gaza lands for his own private enterprises.

There is nothing corroborating the charges, but the fact that they are out there and being reported is most interesting. Especially during supposed "unity" talks.
