Hamas PM granddaughter returns from Israel clinically dead

GAZA CITY (AFP) -- A granddaughter of Gaza's Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh returned to the Gaza Strip on Monday in a state of "clinical death" after she was hospitalized in Israel in critical condition, Palestinian sources said Monday.

Amal Haniyeh, aged one, suffers from a serious infection of the digestive tract which has affected her nervous system, according to Gaza medical sources.

"Amal has crossed the Green Line (border with Israel) now, and I call on God to grant her health," Abd al-Salam Haniya, the premier's son, wrote Sunday on his Facebook page.

"I call on God to grant good health to my daughter Amal, who entered in a state of clinical death," he added the next day.

She was subsequently returned to the Gaza Strip by Israeli doctors, who claimed her survival chances were slim.

Photographs on social networks show Ismail Haniyeh visiting the sick child in Al-Nasser pediatric hospital before her transfer.

The Israeli military administration, contacted by AFP, said it had no knowledge of the transfer.

Several thousand Gazans are authorized each year to cross the border for medical treatment in Israel, according to the World Health Organization.
