Three sons and three grandchildren of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh were killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza, according to Hamas-affiliated media and Haniyeh.

Shehab, the Hamas-affiliated news agency, said in a Telegram post that three of Haniyeh’s sons and three of his grandchildren died in a bombing by Israeli forces. Haniyeh confirmed the deaths in an interview with Al Jazeera’s satellite channel and said that Israel acted in “the spirit of revenge and murder.”

The Hamas-run media office also condemned the deaths of the Haniyeh family in a statement. The office said the airstrike hit “a civilian car in which a number of his sons and grandchildren were traveling.”

Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV station also reported the deaths, according to The Associated Press. The station reported that the family members were killed near the Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.

Haniyeh said in the Al Jazeera interview that the deaths would not alter Hamas’s demands in the cease-fire discussions.
