Israel indicts Hamas leader's sister on terrorism incitement

Israel's state attorney indicted the sister of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on charges of incitement and showing solidarity with a terrorist group.

Sabah al-Salem Haniyeh has been held in Israeli custody since her arrest on 1 April, after she allegedly praised Hamas's assault on southern Israel on 7 October and called for further "slaughter" in a series of text messages.
