The granddaughter of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh was returned from an Israeli hospital to the Gaza Strip on Tuesday reportedly in a state of "clinical death," AFP cited Palestinian sources as saying Monday.

The one-year-old Amal Haniyeh was admitted in serious condition to Schneider Children’s Medical Center for Israel in Petah Tikva on Sunday after being diagnosed with an acute digestive tract infection. Israeli doctors reportedly deemed her chances of survival as slim and returned her to the coastal enclave.

"Amal has crossed the Green Line (border with Israel) now, and I call on God to grant her health," AFP quote the premier's son Abd al-Salam Haniya as saying on Facebook.

"I call on God to grant good health to my daughter Amal, who entered in a state of clinical death," he added.
