Yahya Sinwar, the chief of Hamas in Gaza, visits the Gaza offices of Al Jazeera after the broadcaster’s journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed during clashes between Palestinian gunmen and Israeli troops during a military raid in the West Bank.

“Abu Akleh was killed more than once: First when they shot her and the second time with the attempts to prevent the funeral,” he says, referring to violent scenes yesterday for which Israel has faced widespread condemnation.

The visit is Sinwar’s first public appearance since calls for Israel to kill him following a deadly terror attack in Elad earlier this month.

“I’m not hiding,” he says.
