Spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Interior and National Security, Iyad al-Bazm, said Alami has been taken to the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City to receive medical treatment.

Senior Hamas official Imad al-Alami is in critical condition after he accidentally shot himself in the head on Tuesday while inspecting his weapon, according to the group's spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum.

However, some reports suggest Al-Alami may have been shot in an assassination attempt, according to the BBC.

There was no independent confirmation of that account. Consequently, al-Alami is one of six Hamas members designated as terrorists by the State Department as terrorists and had his financial assets frozen by the British government.

At the start of the Syrian civil war in 2012, he was the last Hamas leader to leave Damascus and return to Gaza, where he was quickly elected as deputy Hamas leader, a capacity in which he served until last year's elections.

The current campaign by the IS against Hamas comes following the recent efforts by Hamas to prevent from Salafi, pro-IS, and other Jihadi elements in the Gaza Strip from firing rockets at Israel in the weeks following Trump's announcement.
