Meeting with a Hamas adviser in Gaza

Reporters on the Job: Conscious of his personal security, Hamas foreign affairs adviser Ahmed Yousef met me and other international visitors at his brother’s house in Gaza. The sprawling house was not hit at all during the 22-day Israeli offensive.

He told me that his brother is a businessman who lives abroad. Dr. Yousef said that the neighborhood where he lives was hit, but not his house personally. He said it was not possible to meet people (i.e., journalists, etc.) in his home in a totally different area of Gaza, which I understood to mean because he didn’t want people to know where he lives.

Read more about what he said in our story on Hamas regrouping.
