October 19, 2014 An Israeli hospital confirmed Sunday that it had treated the daughter of Hamas’s top leader in the Gaza Strip, weeks after a brutal war between Israel and the Islamist terror group.
Avi Shushan, a spokesman for Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital, said the daughter of Ismail Haniyeh was hospitalized for ‘a number of days’ this month. He did not disclose what she was treated for.
A spokeswoman for the Israeli military also confirmed the hospital stay. Hamas officials were not immediately available for comment.
Israel and Hamas fought a fierce 50-day war this summer that killed more than 2,100 Palestinians, mostly civilians according to Palestinian sources, and 72 people on the Israeli side, mostly soldiers. Israel says half of the Gaza dead were Hamas and other gunmen.
Haniyeh’s daughter was treated in Israel following complications during a standard medical procedure in Gaza, Reuters reported Sunday.
Israeli authorities occasionally allow injured and ill Palestinians to leave the Gaza Strip and seek care at Israeli hospitals, and both Haniyeh’s mother-in-law and baby granddaughter were treated in Israel in the last year alone.

In June, the GMBDW reported that the mother-in-law of Ismail Haniyeh was allowed into Israel for medical treatment.
In July, the GMBDW reported on an article titled “Hamas Officials Get Rich in Gaza” which looked at the wealth accumulated by Hamas leaders in Gaza including Ismail Haniyeh.
