‘ Muhammad Salih Taha ‘
Palestinian medical sources told reporters that Taha was taken from his home in al-Bureij refugee camp to al-Aqsa Martyrs hospital in Deir al-Balah, where doctors announced his death upon arrival.
Taha, often called Abu Ayman, was deported by Israel to Marj al-Zuhur in southern Lebanon in 1992 along with about 400 Palestinians from the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and areas inside Israel.
The Hamas leader later served as mayor of al-Bureij camp for four years.
His son Yasser was assassinated in an Israeli air-strike in June 2003.
