Freed Palestinian prisoner Ahmed al-Damoni, who was held by Israel for 23 years, sits with his family's inside his family's house in the central Gaza Strip October 30, 2013. Israelis say al-Damoni was convicted of killing an Israeli in 1990. Israel freed 26 Palestinian prisoners on Wednesday, the second stage of a limited amnesty designed to help U.S.-sponsored peace talks that have been dogged by divisions on both sides.
