The Palestinian militant group Hamas has announced that Ismail Haniya has been elected as the new leader of Hamas’s political bureau.

The announcement on Satuday came just days after Hamas unveiled a more moderate stance towards Israel.

He succeeds Khaled Meshaal, who has served the maximum two terms in office. He was born in Gaza in 1962 to parents who fled when Israel was created in 1948.  He was jailed several times by Israel during the first Intifada, or uprising, in the late 1980s – and later deported to Lebanon.
