Hamas PAID Family To Say Their Baby Was 'killed By Israeli Tear Gas' by fabre4: 4:41am On Jun 23, 2018
A Palestinian man who was charged with terror related charges told investigators that his family was paid by Hamas' leader to falsely tell the media his baby cousin died of tear gas inhalation.  

The story of Leila al-Ghandour's death due to tear gas sprayed by Israeli forces at Gaza border protesters made global headlines last month. It added to criticism on Israel's handling of Hamas orchestrated violence. 

Her cousin Mahmoud Omar,20, made the revelation about his family being paid to lie about her death as he was being interrogated after being arrested by IDF forces on May 28, according to The Times of Israel.  

Mr Omar told authorities that he was one of the 40,000 Gazans taking part in protest protests at the border two weeks before his death. He said that while at the border his mother called to inform him that his eight-month-old cousin had died.


Mr Omar said that when he arrived home he was informed, Layla had died of a blood disease similar to the one that her deceased brother died of in 2017.

But Omar made a claim to authorities that Yahya Sinwar, the Hamas leader paid Layla's parents 8,000 NIS (around £1700) to tell the media his cousin died due to tear gas inhalation at the Gaza protests. 

Leila was believed to be the youngest victim of 58 Palestinians killed in demonstrations.

It was the deadliest day since the 2014 Gaza War. At least 2,700 were said to be injured.

Leila's mother, Mrs al-Ghandour said in an interview after her daughter's death: ‘The Israelis killed her.’        

Mr Omar was arrested along with another member of Fatah’s armed wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.

The group had tried and failed to torch an unmanned IDF post.

Omar acted as a lookout while two other members of his squad attempted to cut through the fence and cross into Israel.

The group did not manage to carry out the attack as they came under IDF fire. Israeli forces captured Omar and one other accomplice, while the third attacker managed to flee, according to the indictment.

IDF troops found wire-cutters as well as a bottle of gasoline and a video camera at the scene.

During questioning, Omar told interrogators details of the planned attack and detailed his involvement in other terror-related activities.
