Jamila al-Shanti, 1st woman in Hamas political bureau, said killed in Israeli strike

Hamas-affiliated media in Gaza report that Jamila al-Shanti, the widow of Hamas co-founder Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi and the first woman elected to the terror group’s political bureau, was killed in an Israeli airstrike.

The reports give no details on the location of the strike, saying only that it occurred at dawn.

Al-Shanti in 2021 became the first woman elected to the Hamas political bureau, its highest decision-making body.

Rantisi was killed in 2004 by an Israeli airstrike during the Second Intifada.
