Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya Sinwar said on Friday that Qatar does not support the rapprochement between Hamas and Egypt particularly in terms of the efforts to reconcile between it and Fatah.
This comes after Doha’s previous unsuccessful intervention in Palestinian reconciliation efforts.
Asked whether it’s possible for Hamas to communicate with Qatar to pay the wages of its employees in Gaza until a judicial committee agreed on in Cairo is created, Sinwar said: “Qatar is dissatisfied with Hamas due to some of its moves.”
Hamas and Fatah signed a reconciliation deal on October 12. According to the deal brokered by Egypt, Hamas and Fatah will complete Gaza handover by December 1.
