Hamas Elects Ismail Haniyeh As New Political Chief: Spokesman

Hamas elected Ismail Haniyeh to lead its political office on Saturday.


Gaza:  The Palestinian movement Hamas elected Ismail Haniyeh to lead its political office on Saturday, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Reuters in Gaza.

Former deputy chief Haniyeh will replace Qatar-based veteran leader Khaled Meshaal, who is stepping down from the group just as it softened its stance toward Israel in a new policy document last week.
