The Gazan that held three of the four Israeli hostages that Israel just rescued was in fact a spokesman for Hamas, and a journalist who wrote for Al-Jazeera and more recently, the Palestine Chronicle, according to the New York Post. The IDF killed him in his house when the soldiers were rescuing the hostages.

Hamas operative/journalist/kidnapper Abdallah Aljamal’s published works readily reveal that he was a staunch Hamas propagandist.

On June 7, the Palestine Chronicle published AlJamal’s article lamenting the IDF’s assassination of the mayor of Nuseirat, Dr. Iyad Maghari. One of those interviewed for his article opinioned that “Maghari was one of the best mayors we have had in years. He was highly competent, close to the citizens, and constantly working to serve us.” But AlJamal’s article failed to mention that, according to the IDF, Maghari “was a terrorist with ‘an extensive history in Hamas,” and had previously orchestrated terror attacks when serving in Hamas’ de-facto West Bank headquarters.

In that same article, AlJamal also mourned the death of the mayor of Al-Maghazi, Hatem Al-Ghamri, also killed by the IDF, in April 2024. What he omits is that Al-Ghamri served in Hamas’ military wing and oversaw rocket attacks on Israel.

On June 6, the Palestine Chronicle published AlJamal’s article lamenting the “Nuseirat School Massacre,” where the IDF attacked an UNRWA school. Hamas claimed that at least 27 people were killed, while UNRWA claimed between 35 and 45 killed. AlJamal’s article fails to mention that the attack targeted 30 Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, of which the IDF has so far identified 17, some of whom were terrorists in the October 7 attack. The article also fails to state that the attack was a “precision” strike that targeted three classrooms that the terrorists were located, rather than another part of the school where civilians were. AlJamal’s article also omits mention that the UNRWA school had been used by Hamas’ elite Nukhba terrorist division, and that the IDF operation had been postponed twice in order to avoid civilian causalities.

Indeed, the day after the IDF’s attack on Hamas and Islamic Jihad forces in the UNRWA school in Nuseirat, the IDF attacked Hamas in another UNRWA school, this one in the Shati neighborhood of Gaza City. Hamas had been operating a military command center and a meeting center for Hamas’ internal security personnel from a “container” within the school. From there, Hamas had been planning attacks on Israel. While Palestinian Authority news stated that 15 Palestinians were killed in this strike, the IDF insists that the strike was also a precision strike.

On May 27, the Palestine Chronicle published AlJamal’s article claiming that Israeli soldiers were kidnapped in Jabaliya. This claim, made by Hamas as well, was categorically denied by Israeli authorities. Additionally, the identity of the soldiers in the alleged kidnapping videos have yet to be identified, and the video contains images of military gear and submachine guns captured from the soldiers that are not commonly used by the IDF. The IDF had succeeded in recovering the bodies of seven hostages from the tunnels of Jabaliya last month.

Hamas operative/journalist/kidnapper Abdallah Aljamal, one of the many perpetrators of crime against humanity against Israel from October 7 and its aftermath, is dead. Aljamal is a case study that better investigative journalism is needed to report on the precise identities of those killed in Hamas’ war with Israel. By understanding Aljamal’s identity, one can see how Hamas operatives embed themselves deep within Gazan society, be it among journalists, in schools, in UNRWA, in hospitals, in mosques, or in the transfer of humanitarian aid. Hopefully Aljamal’s death will serve as a wakeup call to the world to not reflexively blame Israel for the damage that Hamas’ war crimes have caused in Gaza.

Al Jazeera reporter who held Israeli hostages in home was spokesman for Hamas-run labor ministry

Abdallah Aljamal, who wrote for Al Jazeera and worked as a spokesman for Gaza’s Hamas-run labor ministry, was killed when Israel Defense Forces troops entered his central Gaza home over the weekend and rescued hostages Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andri Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, according to Israeli officials.

Al Jazeera said Sunday that Aljamal “has never worked with the Network, but had contributed to an Op-ed in 2019,” although his profile on Al Jazeera’s website describes him a “Gaza-based reporter and photojournalist.”

The network also said allegations against Aljamal are “completely unfounded” and are “a continuation of the process of slander and misinformation aimed at harming Al Jazeera’s reputation, professionalism, and independence.”

Just The News reports this is not the first time the network has come under pressure from Israel. The Israeli government unanimously voted last month to close Al Jazeera’s offices in Israel due to security concerns.

Despite the network’s denial of a relationship with Aljamal, it is horrifically hostile towards Israel and Jews. As recent as Tuesday, the network’s English-language article featuring “Live Updates” from the Israel-Gaza war had the headline, “UN chief calls for ceasefire agreement,” with the first sentence stating: “Calling the conditions in Gaza ‘deplorable’, UN chief Antonio Guterres tells Israel and Hamas to come to an agreement on a ceasefire proposal outlined late last month by the US.”

At the same time, the Arabic-language live-updates article used the headline, “New losses for the occupation and the Palestinian factions respond to the ceasefire proposal,” with the first sentence of the article stating, as translated: “On the 249th day of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the occupation army continued to bomb multiple areas of the Gaza Strip, while the Ministry of Health confirmed that the occupation committed 3 massacres that claimed the lives of 40 martyrs and 120 wounded in the past 24 hours.”

The term “occupation,” is used to refer to the Israel Defense Forces, while the “Israeli aggression” refers to Israel’s war against Hamas in response to the Oct. 7, 2023, terrorist attack that killed about 1,200 people and resulted in the kidnapping of about 250 others, many of whom still remain captive. Additionally, the term “martyrs” refers to any Palestinian – civilian or combatant – killed during fighting against Israel or Jews in general.
