Malaysia PM Anwar meets Hamas leaders in Qatar, urges Israel to stop atrocities against Palestinians

Anwar also conveyed his condolences on the passing of Haniyeh’s family members who were killed in bombings by Israel.

Haniyeh’s three sons were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza Strip in April.

The Israeli military confirmed carrying out the attack, describing the three sons as operatives in the Hamas armed wing.

Four of Haniyeh’s grandchildren, three girls and a boy, were also killed in the attack, Hamas said.

Asked about the four grandchildren killed in the airstrike, the Israeli military said there was “no information on that right now”.

This was Anwar’s first face-to-face meeting with Haniyeh as prime minister of Malaysia.

Anwar has met the top Hamas leader twice, with the last one in 2020 when Haniyeh visited Malaysia. They also met in 2019.

The prime minister also met the two top leaders of the Qatari government to discuss the conflict, Malaysian news outlet Bernama reported.

He said the two countries agreed that all parties should play a role in finding a solution to end the suffering of the Palestinian people, reported Bernama.

The Palestinian death toll in the war has now surpassed 35,000, according to Gaza health officials, whose figures do not differentiate between civilians and fighters.
