Israel refuses Haniyeh request to allow sisters to attend son's Gaza wedding

Israel has informed Hamas' deputy political bureau chief, Ismail Haniyeh, that it will not permit his three sisters to visit the Gaza Strip to attend his son's wedding.
Haniyeh's sisters, holders of Israeli citizenship, live in the Beduin town of Tel Sheva, a suburb of Beersheba.
IDF Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, who heads the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), said it was his decision to refuse Haniyeh's request.
