The seriously ill granddaughter of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh came to Israel for medical treatment.

One-year-old Amal Haniyeh, accompanied by her grandmother, crossed from Gaza into Israel to be seen by doctors at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Petah Tikvah, according to reports based on Palestinian sources.

Amal reportedly had an infection of her digestive tract that affected her nervous system and damaged her brain. She was transferred back to a hospital in the Gaza Strip after Israeli doctors determined that they could not help her, and her condition continued to deteriorate.

Her father, Abdul Salam Haniyeh, wrote on his Facebook page Monday afternoon that his daughter had returned to Gaza in a state of clinical death.

He had posted previously on Facebook that his daughter had been transferred to an Israeli hospital, though the post was subsequently removed, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Haniyeh recently called for a third Palestinian intifada in the West Bank.
