Imad al-Alami, one of the founders of Hamas and a member of the Shura Council, the political and religious leadership of the movement, has died at a hospital in Gaza, Hamas said.

On January 9, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said that Alami shot himself in the head "while examining his personal weapon in his home."Hamas-run Interior Ministry Spokesman Iyad Bozm added that Alami "mistakenly" opened fire on himself".

Read the full story here.

Another Hamas spokesperson, Hazem Qasem, announced al-Alami's death Tuesday morning in remarks to Gazan media in Shifa hospital.

According to some reports, al-Alami attempted suicide because he was suffering from cancer; while others say it was an assassination attempt.

Al-Alami received a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Alexandria in Egypt, married and had six children.

In March a senior party leader, Mazen Faqha, was shot dead inside Gaza, with Hamas accusing Israel of responsibility.

Alami was Hamas' first liaison in Iran, and served in that country and Syria starting in the 1980s before returning to Gaza in 2012.

After the 2014 war between Hamas and Israel, Alami traveled to Turkey for treatment for what Hamas said was an injury during the war. There were no details on how he was injured and lost a leg.
