Haniyeh’s sister released to house arrest after being charged with incitement

A court releases the sister of Hamas’s top leader to house arrest after she was indicted for incitement and identification with a terror group, Hebrew media reports.

The sister of Hamas’s supreme leader Ismail Haniyeh, Sabah Haniyeh, 57, was born in Gaza but has Israeli citizenship and lives in southern Israel. She was arrested in early April and indicted on April 21.

Haniyeh was released to house arrest today.

According to the indictment, she sent several messages praising the Oct. 7 attack to WhatsApp groups that seem to include members of the extended Haniyeh family.

Ismail Haniyeh lives in exile in Qatar.
