A co-founder of the brutal terror organization Hamas died this week after accidentally shooting himself in the face, confirmed officials with the anti-Israeli group responsible for the deaths of hundreds of civilians.
According to Fox News, Imad al-Alami, the 62-year-old founder of the terror network died weeks after he “accidentally” discharged his weapon while cleaning it, striking himself in the face with a bullet just beneath the eye.
The organization’s Interior Ministry spokesperson said the founder “shot himself in the head while examining his personal weapon in his home.”
Hamas had initially reported al-Alami had passed away from “natural causes,” but issued the correction after allegations swirled that the official had intentionally taken his own life or was murdered by Israeli or American agents.
Al-Alami held several high-level positions within Hamas, including its political organization.
He lived in Syria until 2012, but traveled to Turkey for medical treatment following the 2014 Israel-Hamas war, where he reportedly lost his leg.
