As members of Hamas continue to spew anti-Israel rhetoric, preach the destruction of the Jewish state, and claim that they are rebuilding the terror tunnels that were built with that very purpose, which the IDF destroyed during Operation Protective Edge, an Israeli hospital has confirmed that they have treated the young daughter of a top Hamas leader.

Anti-Israel boycotters, share away.

Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital confirmed Sunday via a spokesperson that the daughter of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh - the former prime minister of Gaza - was treated for "a number of days" after problems following a routine medical procedure in Gaza, according to Reuters.

The spokesperson, Avi Shushan, did not divulge any further details as to why Haniyeh's daughter required treatment.

Hamas officials have yet to comment.

As medical care in Gaza and the West Bank fails in comparison to that provided in Israel, there have been several instances of Palestinians entering Israel to receive care. More noteworthy, this is not the first time a member of Haniyeh's family have entered Israel to receive treatment.

Earlier this year, both Haniyeh's granddaughter and mother-in-law were treated in Israel. Concerning the latter, the 68-year-old woman was allowed to enter from the Gaza Strip to receive cancer treatment at a hospital in Jerusalem.

Concerning the former, Haniyeh's one-year-old granddaughter sought treatment at an Israeli hospital while in critical condition. She was returned to Gaza after doctors confirmed that she was incurable, and died shortly after.

Despite Israelis showing sympathy to the Hamas leader, Haniyeh has continued to call for the destruction of the Jewish State, and has on several occasions refused to disarm.

During this summer's 50-day-war fought between Hamas militants and IDF soldiers where 2,100 Palestinians were killed (which Hamas continue to assert were mostly civilians, despite evidence that proves otherwise), Israel had bombed Haniyeh's Gaza home, though he was not injured during the attack.
