Al Jazeera reporter and Hamas terrorist Ismail Abu Omar
On Saturday night, Al Jazeera reported that doctors at the European Hospital in Gaza warned of life-threatening complications after Abu Omar underwent surgery on Friday evening.
There have been increased calls for his transfer out of the Gaza Strip, citing a lack of necessary medical facilities to treat him.
Dr. Mohammad Alfar, head of an unofficial American medical delegation to Gaza, also warned of further deterioration in his condition.

Following these reports, Al Jazeera announced on Sunday that Abu Omar was transferred through the Rafah crossing to Egypt from where a Qatari plane flew him to Doha. He is receiving medical treatment in the emirate, despite being accused by the IDF of being a terrorist and a Hamas platoon deputy commander. The photographer injured alongside him, Ahmad Mater, remains in the Gaza Strip, connected to a ventilator.
Abu Omar had entered Kibbutz Nir Oz with Hamas terrorists on October 7 and documented the horrors. He also shared a video in which he is heard saying, "The brothers advanced, 'Masha'Allah' may God bless."
