The sister of Hamas spokesperson Moussa Abu Marzouk is being treated for cancer in an Israeli hospital, Israel Radio reported today (November 3, 2014).

The report did not mention at which hospital 60-year-old Halamia Shcata was being treated but did note that her condition is critical. She is reportedly suffering from late-stage cancer.

Hamas leaders continually call for the destruction of the Jewish State on the political level but also send their sick family members to Israel for medical care.

Marzouk’s sister, Shcata, is the latest to receive medical treatment in Israel. Two weeks ago, it was reported that Gazan Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh had turned to the Tel Aviv Soraski Medical Center for emergency medical treatment for one of his 13 children.

Haniyeh’s mother-in-law and his granddaughter were also given medical care at Israeli hospitals.
