Qatari envoy abused, thrown out of hospital in Gaza

The Qatari ambassador in Palestine was kicked out from a hospital by the staff and public images and video shared on Monday revealed.

The video showed angry staff at the Shifa hospital in Gaza showing Qatari envoy, Mohammed al-Emadi, being forced out, throwing shoes at him and tearing up the flag of Qatar while chanting slogans against Qatar.

Ambassador Al-Emadi planned to hold a press conference at the hospital before being attacked and thrown out by staff.

The assailants justified their act by saying that Qatari aid was not genuine and aimed at strengthening the Palestinian divide.
