Israeli doctors reportedly deemed her chances of survival as slim and returned her to a hospital in Gaza City.

"I call on God to grant good health to my daughter Amal, who entered in a state of clinical death," AFP quoted the premier's eldest son Abdel Salam as saying.

On Sunday,  he confirmed that his daughter had been transferred to Israel for medical treatment. “Dear brothers, Amal has been transferred inside the Green Line,” the father wrote. “I pray to Allah for her recovery.”

He later posted another message saying his daughter was expected back in a Gaza hospital after undergoing medical check-ups in Israel.

Palestinians published on Facebook a photo of the Hamas leader during a visit to his granddaughter in Al-Nasr Hospital in the Gaza Strip just before she was taken to Israel.
