Senior Hamas official treated at private Israeli hospita
A senior leader of Hamas is recuperating in an Israeli hospital after undergoing spinal surgery, a report said.
Nayef Rajoub, a top member of the terror group and brother of senior Palestinian Authority (PA) figure Jibril Rajoub, was operated on at Assuta Medical Center’s Ramat Hahayal hospital in Tel Aviv, Israel Hayom reported.
Israeli hospitals have treated high-ranking Palestinian officials in the past, including PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s wife, Amina Abbas. In February 2015, a Fatah official was treated at the Rabin Medical Center. In 2013, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s granddaughter was treated for a rare disease at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Israel.
Rajoub has been on Israel’s radar since he was first arrested in 1989 and subsequently convicted of several terrorism-related charges. In 1992, he was among the hundreds of Hamas terrorists who were deported to Lebanon after the organization killed an Israeli police officer.
