Ten family members of Hamas Political Bureau Chief Ismail Haniyeh were killed in an Israeli airstrike, including Haniyeh’s sister.

Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli aircraft targeted a house belonging to Haniyeh’s family. The house was completely destroyed, resulting in the deaths of at least 10 family members and several injuries.

Sources at Muhammadani Hospital in Gaza City confirmed that Haniyeh’s sister, Zahr Abdusselam Haniyeh, was among the deceased.

This incident follows a previous attack during Ramadan, where an Israeli strike on a vehicle carrying several of Haniyeh’s relatives resulted in the deaths of three of his sons and four grandchildren.
