Turkey extends condolences to Gaza PM Haniyeh

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called Palestinian Gaza Strip Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to express their condolences over the death of Haniyeh’s one-year-old granddaughter.

Amal Haniyeh, who had been fighting a serious illness for the past ten days, was pronounced dead in a Gaza City hospital on Tuesday.

Clinically dead since November 18, Amal – the daughter of Haniyeh's eldest son Abdusselam – was moved last week to Israel's Schneider Children's Medical Center for treatment of a digestive infection that had damaged her brain.

The family, however, later decided to bring her home after being told her condition was incurable.
