Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders make diplomatic visit to Tehran

On March 26, the head of the Politburo of Hamas, Ismail Haniyya, visited Tehran and met with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian. At the same time, the Secretary General of Islamic Jihad terrorist organization Ziyad al-Nahala also visited Tehran.

Ismail Haniyya was born on January 29, 1963 in Shaati Palestinian refugee camp in Gaza. In 1987, he graduated from the Islamic University of Gaza in Arabic literature and joined the new Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS) shortly after. He became one of Sheikh Ahmad Yassin’s closest assistants and headed Hamas’ office in 1998. After Yassin’s assassination in 2004 and his successor Abd al-Aziz Rantisi’s liquidation soon after, Haniyya became head of the Hamas government in Gaza. He was elected as new head of Hamas politburo in May 2017 and his tenure was extended for another four years in August 2021. Currently living in Doha (Qatar), Haniyya has a personal fortune estimated at over $4 billion.

On the other hand, Ziyad al-Nahala was born in Khan Yunis, in southern Gaza Strip, and served time as a teenager for extremist actions by Israeli military and intelligence services. Released from prison under “Jibril deal” exchange agreement between Israelis and Palestinians prisoners, he returned to Gaza Strip where he joined Islamic Jihad terrorist organization created with Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood support. He formed its military wing called Al-Quds Brigade and participated actively during first intifada as brigade commander before being arrested again and deported to Lebanon. Currently serving as Secretary General of Islamic Jihad since replacing Ramadan Shalah due to illness, Nahala is among most wanted terrorists by US authorities with a reward up to $5 million for information leading to his capture; his accounts have been frozen by US authorities.
