Hamas: Haniyeh in hiding for security reasons

A Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip said Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh has gone into hiding, citing security concerns regarding what he assumes is an Israeli desire to assassinate him.


According to the spokesman, Haniyeh realizes he has become a target after Saturday's attack on the Palestinian government building, where his bureau is located. He added that the "resistance" would continue until the "occupation of Palestinian lands" comes to an end. (Elior Levy)
