Israel immediately acceded to a Hamas request to help the sick daughter of their interior minister.
Fathi Hammad's youngest daughter took ill over the weekend. In response to an urgent request, she was rushed via ambulance to a hospital in Ashkelon, where she was briefly treated and then airlifted to Jordan via a Jordanian helicopter.
The child went with her mother, one of Fathi Hammad's four wives.
Hamas has attempted to shut down any mention of this incident in the Gaza media, but Islamic Jihad's organ Palestine Today wrote it up.
