Hamas leader's 3 sons, grandchildren killed in Israeli attack

Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas Political Bureau, has lost three sons and three grandchildren in an attack by the Israeli regime on northern Gaza.

According to media reports, Hazem, Ameer, and Mohammed along with their children were martyred in an airstrike on their car in a Gaza refugee camp.

Haniyeh confirmed the deaths of his family members and told Al Jazeera that Palestinian leaders will not retreat even if their families are killed by the Israeli regime. He also emphasized that such crimes will not impact Hamas's stance in the negotiations for a ceasefire.

“There is no doubt that this criminal enemy is driven by the spirit of revenge and the spirit of murder and bloodshed, and it does not observe any standards or laws,” Haniyeh said, noting that 60 members of his family have been killed since the onset of the war on Gaza.

“Through the blood of the martyrs and the pain of the injured, we create hope, we create the future, we create independence and freedom for our people and our nation,” he added.

The Hamas chief also underlined, “We’ve seen it (Israel) violate everything on the land of Gaza. There is a war of ethnic cleansing and genocide. There is mass displacement.”
