by Zach Pontz
Israeli doctors are treating the infant granddaughter of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who was transferred to a hospital in Israel for medical treatment, her father wrote on Facebook.
“Dear brothers, Amal has been transferred inside the Green line,” Abdel Salam, Haniyeh’s oldest son, wrote. “I pray to Allah for her recovery.”
The matter was first reported in the Palestinian press and then confirmed by the Jerusalem Post.
According to the reports, Amal, 1, was in serious condition after being diagnosed with an infection in the digestive system. Abdel Salam later posted to Facebook that his daughter was expected to return to a hospital in Gaza.
There was no word on who would cover the cost of treatment, but in most cases Israel foots the bill for Palestinians seeking treatment in the country.
