The Hamas Interior Ministry announced that 14 members of Haniyeh’s family were killed in an IDF attack Tuesday afternoon on the family home in Gaza City, including his son, Hazem Ismail Haniyeh.
The younger Haniyeh had obtained permission to leave Gaza through the Rafah crossing in July 2022 together with his wife and two children to join other members of the family in Turkey. Nevertheless, the terrorist leader’s son has since ontinued to travel in and out of the enclave.
The elder Haniyeh has been enjoying the high life in his upscale office in Doha, Qatar, where he was seen shortly after the October 7 invasion of Israel by Hamas operatives, celebrating the slaughter, torture, and abduction of more than a thousand Jewish civilians.
